Another suspect arrested in connection with Rosettenville police shoot-out

Gauteng police have arrested another suspect in connection with a shoot-out with law-enforcement agencies after a foiled cash-in-transit heist in Rosettenville, community safety MEC Faith Mazibuko said.

Eight suspects died during the incident and 10 were arrested.

It’s believed that the suspect opened fire on a police chopper during the chaotic exchange in which eight of his alleged accomplices were killed.

“The latest suspect [arrested in Tembisa] is believed to be the one who shot at the police helicopter,” said Mazibuko on her official Twitter account.

The man was found in possession of four rifles, ammunition, police and G4S vests, an R4 and two R5s, the MEC said.
