16 Apr 2018, Cape Town: A Cape Town metro police officer has allegedly shot dead a suspect outside the Mfuleni Police Station.
Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, says the officer was registering a case docket, when the man arrived, demanding to be arrested.
Smith says he turned towards the officer and stabbed him in the chest twice and once in his left arm. He says the officer retaliated by firing three shots, fatally wounding the suspect.
Two other civilians sustained wounds to their feet as a result of ricocheting bullets. Smith says the Metro policeman is being treated in hospital and will receive counselling.
He says they're cooperating with a police probe into the incident. The police watchdog IPID is also investigating the matter.
