WC govt releases 2015 footage of traffic officer being shot
The incident was captured on the officer's dashboard camera.
JOHANNESBURG - The Western Cape Government has shared a video in which a traffic officer escapes an attack by a gunman on the N2.
Officer Nizaam Alexander was apparently patrolling the area when the perpetrator approached him and shot him at close range last year.
In the footage, Alexander attempts to return fire despite a back injury.
He has since been honored by the provincial government for his professionalism.
