A 25-YEAR-OLD off-duty policeman was shot in Oslo Beach on Friday at 7.20pm.

He succumbed to his injuries the following day and died in a Durban­ hospital.

Port Shepstone police attended the scene and found that the Margate­ police officer had sustained several gunshot wounds.

On Friday evening, two men were taken in for questioning but one was released over the weekend due to insufficient evidence.

The other suspect was also released later.

“At this stage the case cannot be enrolled due to more investigation, which is currently being conducted,” said police spokesperson, lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

A murder docket is being investigated by DPCI-Organised Crime Unit Port Shepstone. - Supplied
