JMPD officer shot in head

A Johannesburg Metro Police officer was gunned down on Friday evening on the corner of Boundary Road and Michigan Avenue and his service pistol was stolen.

Another woman who witnessed the killing was also shot and killed while a man in a taxi was critically injured.

According to JMPD spokesperson Edna Mamonyane the officer went to visit his mother before reporting for duty.

“When he was in his car, five men approached him and shot him in his head.

“The suspects saw a lady who witnessed the crime and also shot her, she died,” Mamonyane said.

She said the motive could be a robbery because the officer’s service pistol was stolen.

Mamonyane calls on witnesses to come forward to assist in apprehending the gunmen.

“Our officers do their best to serve and protect communities.

“They are also a child, husband, wife, father and mother to somebody,” Mamonyane said.
