Two men were riddled with bullets after gunmen opened fire on their car on Tuesday.

Netcare 911 spokesman Shawn Herbst said the shooting occurred on the busy Queen Nandi Drive in Avoca Hills, in the north of Durban.

"Reports from the scene indicate that gunmen had opened fire on a car near the Emgidwini intersection," he said.

Two male occupants of the car sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Herbst said the men were in a critical condition.

"The patients required advanced life support intervention on scene and once stabilised were transported to hospital for further treatment," he said.

"Circumstances leading up to the shooting will be investigated by the SAPS, who are currently on scene and have cordoned off the area. Traffic has been diverted."
