Two robbers were shot and wounded on Monday after an armed robbery at a Mr Price store in northern KwaZulu-Natal, police said.

A security guard was also injured in the robbery.

Police spokesman Captain Shooz Magudulela said three armed men held up staff at the Mr Price store at 9:10am.

"They took a substantial amount of cash and shot a security guard," he said.

The suspects fled into the Sibongile township in a 2007 Toyota Corolla.

"They were chased by police and a shootout ensued... two robbers were shot," he said.

Police seized the Corolla - which was reportedly hijacked recently.

"We also recovered an AK47, two 9mm pistols and the stolen money," Magudulela said.

The two robbers were recovering at a nearby hospital under police guard, while the third man was being sought, police said. - Sapa
