Two days after the arrest of suspected ATM bomber Nhlanhla Mhlongo, another alleged bomber has been killed by police.
Fukani Zwane 35, was shot dead by members of the Durban organised crime unit after he resisted arrest and fired on the police on Thursday.
Police had gone to arrest him for a series of ATM bombings. He would have been the second ATM bomber to be arrested in the city within a week.
Two days earlier police had arrested Mhlongo, 28, at Sundumbili in Mandeni.
He was wanted for four cases of ATM bombings in the province.
Police spokesman Senior Superintendent Jay Naicker said Mhlongo was found in possession of an AK47 rifle and a stolen Audi A4 when he was arrested.
"On Thursday evening, members of the Durban organised crime unit arrived at Zwane's home in KwaMashu. He was wanted for six ATM bombings in the province.
"He was in the driveway and produced a firearm and shot at the police," he said.
Police returned fire, fatally wounding Zwane.
"He was found in possession of a Z88 pistol. Police also found explosives in the house."
