Captain Charl Scheepers caught armed men in the act while responding to a house robbery in Lynnwood Manor.

One of the suspects shot Scheepers in the stomach after he ordered them to drop their weapons.

The police’s Lynnette Erasmus said the Captain died soon after the shooting.

“After the incident there was a clean-up operation,” she said.

“Ten suspects were taken in for questioning and another has been arrested.”
