The City of Cape Town is providing counselling to the family and colleagues of a traffic officer who was killed at a Khayelitsha roadblock last night.
Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, says 46-year-old Deon Sampson was run over and dragged along by a taxi.
Smith says Sampson's fellow
officers gave chase and had to discharge several rounds before the taxi driver was apprehended.
It's alleged he was under the influence of alcohol.
He is expected to appear in the Khayelitsha Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
Sampson leaves behind a wife and three children."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/117402374_3422568147795545_102618052353649946_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=7hcemp9ihRMAX9z7hG6&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&oh=f5cd15af96ab474f3d8f038d3660606c&oe=5F562875"
