“Upon approaching the place in Main Reef Road, the alleged miners started firing shots at the police, causing them to retaliate. Five suspects were arrested, including two who were wounded during the shoot-out,” Sello said in a statement.

She added that police seized ammunition of R5 and hunting rifles as well as one shotgun, positively linked to a house robbery case in Klerksdorp.

“The suspects are expected to appear before court soon, on charges of possession of unlicensed firearms. Investigation continues,” said Sello.
