gunIOL News reports that police in the Western Cape have launched a manhunt after a police captain was shot and killed on Sunday afternoon.

He had been attached to the Table View police station. Provincial police spokesperson, Brigadier Novela Potelwa, said the 54-year-old police officer’s colleagues were still reeling in shock at the loss. “Reports indicate the captain attached to Tableview police station was shot in the Site 5 informal settlement on Sunday afternoon by yet-to-be-arrested suspects who later fled with the policeman’s firearm,” Potelwa said. She said the murder was under investigation, and the matter had been handed over to members of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (known as Hawks). Potelwa said the motive for the murder was expected to be unravelled as the investigation unfolded. The identity of the 54-year-old victim has yet to be released.
