Johannesburg - Three men have been arrested for allegedly killing a woman and wounding her grandchild in Sundumbili, on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast, police said on Friday.

Police spokesperson Jay Naicker said they were taken into custody on Thursday.

The woman was in her rondavel with her two grandchildren on 7 November when she was attacked.

"She was shot and died on the spot. Her house was set alight and her body was burnt to ashes," he said.

One child was shot in the chest and another one was unharmed.

The men, between the ages of 28 and 35, were found in possession of two unlicensed firearms.
