Johannesburg – The Hawks arrested a suspected kidnapper on Monday, after police shot hip hop artist Khuli Chana in a case of mistaken identity, eNCA reports. 

Chana, whose real name is Khulane Morule, was shot at a garage along the N1 highway in Midrand.

ENCA reported that the suspect, 41, was arrested and faces charges of kidnapping and possession of an unlicensed firearm.

Police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini told the TV news station that police were still searching for four other suspects.

Dlamini said police from Bedfordview had mistaken Chana's luxury sedan to be that of a kidnapper, who was being tracked.

Police tried to stop the vehicle, but it drove away at high speed and several shots were fired, he said.

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate said it had launched an investigation into the matter.

Chana has been discharged from hospital and is recovering at home.
