Manhunt for missing suspects

2019-06-12 12:51

Six Anti Gang Unit (AGU) officers were injured in a shooting while they were tracing suspects at Samora Machel in Nyanga this morning (12 June). 

The officers apprehended a suspect allegedly linked to recent murders in Samora Machel when they were gunned down in Sweet Home Farm Informal settlement.

As officers were searching for another suspect also sought for serious crimes in the area, shots came from one of the shacks. 

Two officers suffered serious injuries and four others were also wounded.

They have all been admitted to hospital, with trauma counselling offered to the AGU.

While no arrests have been made, police have launched a manhunt for the suspects.
