CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Premier Helen Zille has offered a R70,000 reward for information that would lead to the arrest of those responsible for the killing of a Hout Bay police officer.

The female officer was shot dead while her male colleague was wounded during a routine patrol in Inzamayethu.

The male officer has now been declared brain dead.

The shooting comes after a metro police officer was shot and killed in Khayelitsha on Thursday.

Zille said this cannot be allowed to carry on.

"This is absolutely shocking in any society that claims to be a democracy and in which people uphold the laws are vulnerable to criminals."
