CAPE TOWN - Ten suspects are expected to appear in the Paarl Magistrates Court today in connection with the murder of a policeman.

Warrant officer, Steven Britz, was gunned down last week in a brazen attack at the Klapmuts Police station.

One of Britz's colleagues, a constable stationed at the Klapmuts Police Station, is among the suspects appearing in the dock today.

His fingerprints were allegedly found at the crime scene.

According to police, the 30-year-old constable hasn't been on duty as he was suspended last month.

A total of five firearms were also stolen from the gun safe during the attack.

At least three police officers have been killed in the province since the start of the year.
