 Four police officers linked to the killing of a suspected criminal in cold blood were arrested and charged with murder in Krugersdorp, west of Johannesburg, on Monday.

The officers were arrested by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) and would be kept at the same Krugerdorp police station in which they served.

The officers, three men and a woman, handed themselves over on Monday morning, Ipid spokesperson Grace Langa said.

Three of the male police officers are believed to reside in the barracks next to the station.

They allegedly shot and killed Khulekani Mpanza on October 19.

The Sunday Times reported at the weekend it had closed circuit television (CCTV) footage of Mpanza being shot in the arm while running away after he allegedly fired shots at a police van.

He drops his firearm and falls on the pavement where a policeman allegedly shoots him. Another policeman allegedly approaches Mpanza and kicks him.

Then another shot - suspected to the head - is fired and he is dead.
