PRETORIA - Gauteng police confirmed on Thursday that a high ranking officer shot and killed a suspected intruder at his Pretoria home.
It is understood two men broke into the lieutenant colonel's house, which he shares with his mother who used a wheelchair, on Tuesday night.
Police spokesperson Katlego Mogale said the officer shot both intruders.
One of them died on the scene while the other escaped.
Mogale said the wounded man fled in a getaway car which was parked outside the house.
“He got away in a white Opel Corsa and police are still looking for him.”
