2011-07-02 08:12

A Cato Manor policeman shot his wife, sister-in-law and mother-in-law yesterday morning after an argument with his wife, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

“The wife fled to her parent’s house in KwaMashu after she fought with the policeman on Thursday night,” Lt-Col Vincent Mdunge said.

The policeman went to the house in the morning and the couple fought again.

He then shot his wife, her younger sister and their mother.

“He ran away and called the station commander at Cato Manor police station and told him he did what he wanted to do and was then going to shoot himself,” said Mdunge.

He said that the three women were all in a critical condition in hospital and that police were still searching for the man.
