Investigating officer shot dead in Westbury
A police officer was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Westbury, Johannesburg, on Sunday evening.
Warrant Officer Dalmain Morris was investigating a murder when he was shot by suspects driving a white Renault Clio.
Brig Athlenda Mathe said he was attached to the police's Anti-Gang Unit.
Nhlanhla Sizani, described as a government policing adviser, said on X the shooting took place at approximately 6.40pm when Morris was standing outside a property with a witness.
"More shots were fired, hitting a witness that was interviewed and a bystander. Both sustained injuries and were taken to the hospital."
Extra police resources were deployed to the gang-ridden area earlier this month after a spate of killings.
