Johannesburg - Two drivers were wounded after they allegedly shot each other in an apparent road rage incident in Blairgowrie, Randburg on Sunday, Johannesburg police said.

Spokesperson Karen Jacobs said a driver of a BMW 320i allegedly argued with the driver of a VW Caddy panel van at the corner of Conrad and Standard roads around 13:00.

"We don't know what the argument was about, but the BMW driver allegedly followed the VW home to Blairgowrie."

Jacobs said the two allegedly argued again and multiple shots were fired by both drivers.

The BMW driver sustained a gunshot wound to the chest and the VW to the leg, she said.

They were both taken to hospital.

Jacobs said police opened two cases of attempted murder and confiscated two firearms from the drivers.

Investigations were underway and the two were expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court as soon as they were discharged from hospital.
