CapeTownlogoEWN reports that Philippi East police have launched a manhunt for suspects after an off-duty officer attached to the City of Cape Town's Metro Police was killed on Wednesday afternoon.

According to police, the shooting incident occurred in Disa Road. The member was based at the Metro Police radio control at N1 City in Goodwood. The 49-year-old officer was found with gunshot wounds next to his vehicle. The police's Frederick van Wyk reported that the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle that belonged to the victim. "The motive for the attack is possibly robbery. The suspects are yet to be arrested and Philippi East detectives are investigating a case of murder," Van Wyk indicated. In March, an off-duty police officer was killed in Delft and weeks before that two officers were ambushed and killed while on duty in Bloekombos.
