Police officer shot dead in Stellenbosch
WC provincial police chief Arno Lamoer says the suspects were disguised as complainants.
CAPE TOWN - A warrant officer was shot dead at the Klapmuts Police Station outside Stellenbosch late on Wednesday night.
Provincial police chief Arno Lamoer was at the station and said the suspects were disguised as complainants.
"Three people arrived at the station as complainants and attacked the police officer. They shot him twice and took the firearm out of the safe."
Last week, Constable Nokulungo Hazel Jako was run over and killed in Strand while trying to apprehend a criminal.
She was standing outside a flying squad vehicle which was blocking the road in an attempt to catch the suspect at the time of the incident.
The 34-year-old was remembered at an emotional memorial service held at the Langa Methodist Church on Tuesday.
