JOHANNESBURG - The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) has confirmed a motorcyclist has been shot dead in what appears to have been a road-rage incident in North Riding this morning.

The police's Edna Mamonyane says the motorcyclist confronted the driver of a car on the corner of Malibongwe Drive and Boundary Road at around 7am.

She confirmed both men were armed.

"The driver of the vehicle shot the motorcyclist and the motorcyclist died on the scene. Police and the JMPD are busy on the scene now."

Paramedics on the scene say the driver was also wounded and rushed to hospital in a serious condition.

It's unclear what the argument was about, but this will form part of the police's investigation.
