The police in Cape Town say they were fired on by a Somali shopkeeper.
They raided five Somali owned Spaza shops in Browns Farm, Philippi.
On arrival at one of the shops someone fired a shot at police through a door, but no one was injured.
Four Somali men and a South African were arrested.
During their search police found four firearms and rounds of ammunition.
It was later established that all the firearms had been reported as stolen.
