The man believed to be involved in the killing of two policemen in Soweto was shot in Johannesburg after being pulled over for questioning.

The police's Lungelo Dlamini, says the police tried to stop the car yesterday but the suspect produced his firearm, jumped out of the car and was shot in the stomach while he was running from the police.

The man has been taken to hospital and will be charged for murder.

Two policemen were shot dead in a Meadowlands hostel whilst on patrol on Sunday.

Police have been raiding several hostels in Soweto, arresting 16 people yesterday.

Earlier, the Inkatha Freedom Party slammed police for harassing residents and injuring some while they were conducted the raids at the hostels.

National Police Commissioner, Bheki Cele, says those unhappy about the police's behaviour should raise their concerns with the Independent Complaints Directorate.
