A man was arrested on Tuesday in connection with killing a woman in a hijacking outside her daughter's school in Bram Fischer phase 4, Gauteng police said.

"We were led to a house in Emdeni where we observed the house up until we found that the man was in the house," spokesperson Kay Makhubela said.

"The police went in and the man was arrested."

He was being detained in Dobsonville and was expected to appear in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Thursday, Makhubela said.

The woman was with her 7-year-old-son and was picking up her 12-year-old daughter from the Soweto school on April 20 when the incident happened.

The daughter got into the car and as they got onto the road they were confronted by two men with guns, Makhubela said at the time.

"The mother was shot and thrown out of the car with her kids," said Makhubela.

She died on the scene.

The children were unharmed.

Several hours later, police found her Toyota Corolla abandoned in Dobsonville extension 3.

According to Netwerk24, the woman, Charlotte Ramohai, 34, was three-months pregnant with her third child when she was killed.
