Two police officers were shot dead in Johannesburg on Saturday night after responding to a hijacking complaint.
Police spokesperson Brig Vishnu Naidoo said a Captain and a Warrant Officer were responding to reports of a hijacking at Leonie street in Winchester Hills, in the south of Johannesburg at around 8pm.
“Initial reports suggest the two members came under fire and they were both fatally wounded at Vleiroos Street while on their way to the complaint. The hijacked vehicle has since been recovered in Klipspruit, Soweto.” National police commissioner Khehla Sithole said officers were working around the clock to find the killers. “We cannot rest until these killers have been found,” said Sithole.
Anyone with information on the incident can call the Crime Stop number 086-001-0111.
