Johannesburg - A man wanted for murder and attempted murder was wounded when he tried to shoot at police in Jabulani on Friday, Gauteng police said.

"He pulled out a firearm but the police reacted quickly and shot him," said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

The man was wanted in connection with a business robbery in Zondi, when one person was killed and another wounded in June.

Police were tipped off that the man was seen at a Jabulani hostel.

"A man and a woman, aged 20, who were with him were arrested for unlawful possession of [a] firearm and ammunition."

"The woman had a baby on her back and had put the gun between the baby and her back."

Makhubela said they would all appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday.
