Johannesburg - Three men were arrested early Friday morning in Jabulani, Soweto, for allegedly hijacking a car in Vosloorus, and displaying false registration plates, Gauteng police said.

"The flying squad police were patrolling and they spotted four cars standing along the street," said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

"One car started shooting at the police. They drove off and police didn't chase but they shot back, no injuries were reported."

Two of the men were arrested for the alleged hijacking while the third, whose car was branded as being part of a driving school, was arrested for displaying false number plates.

The hijacking took place on Thursday.

The men, aged 29, 34 and 40, were arrested near Jabulani cemetery, with three cars recovered, said Makhubela.

They were expected to appear in Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday.
