A suspected robber was killed in a shootout and another man was arrested in Magaliessig, Sandton, on Saturday morning, Gauteng police said.

Lt-Col Katlego Mogale said there was a shootout between the driver of a diplomat and a group of men who followed his car from OR Tambo International Airport.

The driver was wounded, and one of the gang was shot dead.

Police investigations had not yet been able to ascertain whether the crime involved a known syndicate, which followed people from the airport before hijacking or robbing them.

"We have not made that link yet, but they were followed from the airport," she said.

Police were searching for two more men who fled the scene.

The arrested man would appear in court soon.
