sapsANA reports that police are investigating the circumstances in which a SA Police Service (SAPS) officer was killed, allegedly by rowdy pub patrons, in the early hours of Saturday morning in Roodepoort, Johannesburg.  

The police officer and his colleagues were apparently flagged down by the owner of a local pub, calling for assistance with patrons who did not want to leave the pub when the owner wanted to close.  Brigadier Mathapelo Peters said:  “The crowd is said to have turned on the police, ending up with the officer being stabbed in the upper body, and his firearm stolen.  The member was declared dead on the scene.”  The murder was the second of a police officer in the city within the space of one week.
