JOHANNESBURG - The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) says it's investigating how Mount Ayliff officers ran out of rubber bullets during a protest in which schoolboy was gunned down.
The 17-year-old was shot dead with live ammunition on Thursday and another teenager was wounded in the operation.
Officers had been called to the protest where residents had set a tavern on fire.
Ipid's Robbie Raburabu says, "The whole incident is going to be investigated, including why live ammunition was used and why they ran out of rubber bullets."
