Johannesburg - Two men have been arrested in connection with the murder of a shop owner in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

The men were taken into custody on Tuesday evening, after a man was shot dead at his shop in Anton Lembede Street, said police spokesperson Vincent Mdunge.

Apparently he had multiple wounds and he was taken to hospital where he was dead on arrival.

The men, 34 and 35, were caught on the N3 near Berea Centre after a police chase.

Police recovered six cellphones and a car, said Mdunge.

"It has also been established that one of the suspects was wanted in Pretoria in connection with the murder of his brother."

They would appear at the Durban Magistrate's Court on Friday.
