Three suspected carjackers died in a hail of bullets during a confrontation with police in Wentworth, Durban, on Wednesday night.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Shooz Magudulela said the provincial vehicle task team had responded to a report that a gold-coloured Mercedes Benz had been hijacked in Merebank, and had thrown a wide net in their search for the suspects.

Magudulela said the responding officers were led on a high-speed chase through Merebank and along a section of freeway towards the Bluff.
