A 22-year-old robber was wounded and later died in hospital after a
high-speed car chase with police in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal
police said on Monday.

Spokesperson Superintendent Henry Budhram said five robbers stole a
woman's cellphone and handbag on Durban Road on Sunday when a police
officer spotted the crime.

A chase through the city ensued and when the robbers failed to stop,
police opened fire on the car. It came to a halt at an intersection on
Commercial Road.

Police found that one of the suspects had been shot in the back of the
head. He was taken to hospital where he later died.

The four others were arrested and due to appear in court soon. Budhram
said the circumstances surrounding the man's death were being
investigated. - Sapa
