Response officer shot in Isipingo Beach – firearm stolen
Alpha Alarms Response Unit was alerted to a shooting along Avenue East Road in Isipingo Beach early this morning.
The Alpha member was met by members of a private security company and SAPS
officers. It was revealed that a response officer from a private security company was approached by a man who requested a lift. The response officer declined as he was on duty at the time. The man then tussled with the response officer and attempted to grab his gun. A shot was fired which struck the response officer. The suspect then grabbed the gun and fled.
The response officer was grazed by the bullet and treated on scene before he
was taken to hospital.
Alpha Alarms wishes the injured response officer a speedy recovery.
