tshwane thumb100 ANA reports that another Gauteng metro police officer has been killed, this time in the City of Tshwane.  The Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) said the officer was shot dead in his home on Saturday morning.  

The 29-year-old constable was found by a colleague in a pool of blood with a bullet wound at his flat in the Hercules area in Pretoria after he did not report for on Saturday.  Police have opened an inquest docket, while the possibility that no foul play was involved is being investigated.  This was the second TMPD officer to die this week as another constable was shot and killed during a business robbery earlier in the week.  At the same time, an off-duty Joburg Metro Police officer was shot dead when he tried to intervene in a business robbery, the fourth JMPD officer killed in less than a month.
