Cape Town - A Cape Town police officer is in a stable but serious condition after being shot in the stomach, according to a report on Thursday.

The Cape Times reported that Kevin Rodgers, 29, was in an intensive care unit in hospital and "out of danger".

He was shot while apprehending three men in Belhar on Tuesday night.

The three, aged 18 to 24, ran away and were arrested soon after.

Rodgers was one of 153 provincial police officers attacked this year, of whom four were killed.
Three police officers were killed last week alone.

Constables Mandisi Nduku, 27, and Phindiwe Nikani, 26, were shot while on patrol in Imizamo Yethu, Hout Bay, on Friday night. Nikani died on the scene and Nduku later in hospital.

According to the report, Fabianus Filipus, 28, appeared for their deaths in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, where the case was postponed until later on Thursday.

Last Wednesday, metro police officer Mpumelelo Xakekile, 50, was shot dead while issuing a fine to a taxi driver in Khayelitsha.

Sandisile Ncapayi, 18, appeared in connection with the killing and will return to court on Monday.
