2016-07-14 06:00

DIE polisie in Humansdorp het ’n moordsaak geopen nadat ’n man glo ’n werknemer van die Departement van Openbare Werke in sy kantoor doodgeskiet het – en die wapen toe op homself gerig het.

Volgens sers. Majola Nkohli, polisiewoordvoerder, het die gewapende man (52) verlede Woensdag omstreeks 07:30 by die departement se gebou in Stasiestraat ingestorm.

“Hy het na bewering na die kantoor van Christian Crouse (56), ’n werknemer van die departement, gegaan,” sê Nkohli.

Hy het Crouse glo talle kere geskiet.

“Die slagoffer is op die toneel oorlede, terwyl ’n vrou wat ten tyde van die voorval by Crouse was, uit die kantoor gevlug het.”

Die man, wat volgens Nkohli homself ook geskiet het, is as Rudolf Meiring (52) geïdentifiseer.

’n Rewolwer is ook op die toneel gevind.

Die polisie sal ’n geregtelike doodsondersoek doen.
