Johannesburg - A police constable shot dead his girlfriend and her sister before killing himself in Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.

Captain Johannes Motsiri said the three bodies were found by a man who was supposed to fit tiles at the couple's townhouse on Wednesday morning.

"The man let himself in as the door was open."

Motsiri said neighbours had not heard any shots fired on Tuesday night. The motive behind the shooting was not immediately clear.

The 35-year-old constable was a member of the VIP protection unit.
