CAPE TOWN - Yet another police officer has died in the line of duty.
It's believed the 37-year-old policeman was shot in Khayelitsha last night while trying to arrest a suspect.
Western Cape Community Safety MEC Dan Plato says the police detective succumbed to his wounds in hospital last night.
He was shot while trying to arrest a suspect wanted for murder and robbery.
Police have made an arrest in connection with the officer's killing.
At least eight police officers have been killed in the province this year so far.
Speaking at a commemoration ceremony for slain police officers in Pretoria last month, police minister Nkosinathi Nhleko reiterated that the police service and government will continue to support their families in any way it can.
