The City of Cape Town is offering a reward of R50 000 to anyone who has information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for a shooting incident that left two metro police officers and


a motorist wounded on the N2 this morning. Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith says Metro police officers were dispatched to the N2 inbound near Borcherd's Quarry early this morning when operators detected rocks on the roadway. Smith says officers responded to a motorist who drove over the rocks and stopped to repair a puncture. While doing so, another vehicle pulled over and one of the occupants shot at the motorist. The suspects then opened fire


on two other Metro Police officers who arrived on the scene: "The officers are in hospital and we wish them well on their road to recovery the city will provide trauma counselling and any other support that may require through our employer system assistance programme at this stage we are not certain about the condition of the motorist who was shot but our thoughts are with him and his family. The city of Cape Town condemns such careless attacks and we will work very closely with the South African police to ensure those responsible are brought to book."
