Johannesburg - Two people have been arrested in connection with the shooting of a Belhar policeman, Cape Town police said on Thursday.

Warrant Officer November Filander said the two, aged 28 and 33, were arrested in Belhar on Wednesday.

They were found in possession of a firearm, which might have been used in the shooting, he said.

They allegedly shot and wounded Sergeant Kevin Rogers while he was arresting three men in Belhar on Tuesday night.

"The two suspects will appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court tomorrow [Friday], on charges of attempted murder," said Filander.

He said three people taken in for questioning on Tuesday were released on Wednesday as they could not be linked to the shooting.
