A police officer was gunned down in Sandton’s busy Katherine Street on Thursday by at least two gun wielding suspects, who fled in a blue sedan.
The brazen robbery, which saw the suspects flee the scene with the officer’s service pistol and other items, was captured on video, by office workers at one of Sandton’s skyscrapers. In the video, the officer had been riding in a white VW Polo and appeared to have been accosted by the gunmen at a traffic light intersection between Katherine and 5th Street in Sandton.
He was shot at through the driver’s door and the suspects are seen fleeing with items taken from the officer’s front and back seat.
According to crime activist Yusuf Abramjee, the victim died after being rushed to hospital.
