CAPE TOWN – A suspected car hijacker has been wounded in a gun battle with police in Manenberg.

Over the weekend, officers had pulled over a vehicle the man was driving in after being alerted to be on the lookout for a hijacked car.

Two occupants tried to flee the scene. One of them opened fire on police who retaliated, wounding one of them.

Nine suspects were eventually taken into custody.
