Cape Town - A Cape Town man was shot dead, allegedly by police, following a domestic violence complaint, it was reported on Tuesday.

The Cape Argus
reported that Denzil Daniels, aged 27, was shot in the back in Kalkfontein on Saturday afternoon.

Independent Police Investigative Directorate spokesperson Moses Dlamini said a constable allegedly "shot the deceased in the back after he was fleeing and resisting arrest".

"There was also a knife on the scene, which the police claimed belonged to the deceased, as he wanted to stab the [police] member."

Dlamini said Daniels had been wanted in connection with a case of domestic violence and malicious damage to property.

Abigail Daniels told the newspaper her brother started arguing with her at their home in Delft that morning when she said he could not use her toothbrush.

Infuriated, he used a knife to slash the couch's cushions, and smashed the television on the floor.

Their mother went to the Delft police station to seek help, hoping he would be locked up.

Denzil went to visit a cousin in Kalkfontein and was shot en-route.
