Three men, believed to have committed a house robbery on Tuesday, have been arrested after a shoot-out with police on the M7 highway, south of Durban.

According to sources on scene, police received information about three men driving a white Toyota Etios who had committed a house robbery.

Police spotted the vehicle and a high-speed chase ensued. The wanted men are alleged to have opened fire on police, who retaliated. The driver lost control of the vehicle just before the N2 off-ramp and the vehicle overturned.

Members of the police and metro police cordoned off a portion of the M7 highway and the three alleged robbers were treated by paramedics before being arrested at the scene.

Police did not immediately respond to queries.
