Police are requesting assistance in locating a suspect wanted in connection with a murder.

On Sunday 27 December last year at about 21:00 Mitchell’s Plain police attended to a shooting at the corners of Muurbal and Tennis streets, Beacon Valley. It is alleged the deceased was at his home and sitting in the front yard when the suspect approached him.

It is believed the suspect was walking by with a friend and called the victim to come outside. He refused.

The suspect then drew a firearm and started shooting at the man, shooting him in the back, right shoulder, left arm and right leg.

He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.

Police believe the men had an argument the previous evening.

Both suspects fled the scene on foot.

A man, Reza Johnson, formerly of Netball Street, Beacon Valley, was arrested and appeared in court shortly thereafter.

He has since missed his court appearance and a warrant of arrest has been issued.

V Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Rezah Johnson is asked to call the investigating officer Detective Constable Bradley Schuurman on 082 777 8076.
