A top cop has been shot and killed at his home in Bishop Lavis in Cape Town.
Police would not provide any further details of the incident, but it's believed the victim is a senior investigator in the Anti Gang Unit.
The officer was known to be the lead investigator in several
high-profile gang related crime cases.
Last year, after receiving death threats, 24-hour-security was placed outside his home.
The officer is said to have been the lead investigator in the murder of a prominent Cape Town lawyer Pete Mihalik.
Meanwhile, a 43-year old off duty police sergeant has been shot and killed in Khayelitsha on the Cape Flats.
Police say Sergeant Thabile Mapoma was sitting in his car in his driveway in Cula Street, Harare, yesterday morning when he was murdered."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p526x296/119787508_3548213375231021_1664404833695442728_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=0-mwDDa5WfgAX8Zx1pj&_nc_oc=AQma8y-zDItriSIkfb0U95kb8leFvCgh1BsEXbCN3FjOtVywZ3uozkfwsmW7HfOKyUY&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=4794728ecbf74d9d891d5eb70ff633e4&oe=5F892B8F"
