Police officer arrested after unexplained shooting spree
06 September 2018

A member of the South African Police Service (SAPS) who went on an unexplained shooting spree on Tuesday morning (04/09) will soon appear in court for attempted murder.

“The police officer was arrested by the response task team after he had allegedly shot at a bus in Theunissen,” says Motantsi Makhele, police spokesperson.

Three people were injured during the incident and a 36-year-old was sent to a hospital with serious injury.

The officer was disarmed at the scene before he was arrested.

The motive behind the shooting is not yet clear.

Makhele says an assessment of the officer will be done following the incident.

“He was arrested by the response team called to the scene in the Theunissen area, and I cannot comment on his appearance in court yet,” says Makhele.
