Two police officers were shot and wounded by alleged hijackers in Benoni on the East Rand on Friday morning, Gauteng police said.

Lieutenant-Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said the officers were shot while pursuing a hijacked truck.

“One was shot in the leg and one was shot in the shoulder,” he said.

Both officers were taken to hospital.

The truck was later found abandoned in Kempton Park. It was apparently hijacked in Secunda, Mpumalanga.

Three rifles were also recovered.

No arrests had yet been made.
