THE 36-year-old female Ray Nkonyeni officer, who was allegedly shot by her husband at their Bhomela home on Monday, remains in critical condition in a Margate Hospital.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid confirmed that the shooting happened after a domestic argument between the two at around 9am.“It is alleged that he shot her with his licensed pistol, a Z88 9mm,” said Wiid. The victim sustained injuries to the chest, face, arm and neck. The 32-year-old husband, also a Ray Nkonyeni Municipality employee, was arrested by municipal law enforcement officers who then handed him over to Paddock SAPS. He will appear in court soon to face a charge of attempted murder.

Speaking on behalf of Ray Nkonyeni Municipality, Khanyiso Seyisi confirmed that the municipality is aware of the incident.
