MARGATE SAPS arrested an alleged attempted murder suspect, Msizi Walter Dlazela (21), for attempting to kill Siyamiso Bebu in Masinenge.

Police spokesperson, Captain Gerald Mfeka, said the victim was playing cards when he heard a gunshot, but did not realise he had been shot, but could smell smoke.

“The complainant said he felt a hot pain on the right side of his neck and when he touched himself he noticed there was blood,” said Mfeka.

Mfeka said the police received information about an attempted murder and went to Masinenge.

On arrival the members saw a group of people and noticed the suspect trying to flee after seeing the police van. Detectives caught the suspect and searched him and found a 9mm Parabellum Millennium firearm with ammunition and one magazine.

The suspect is believed to be involved in an alleged murder in Paddock and he was on a wanted list.

Dlazela appeared in the Ramsgate Magistrate’s court on Tuesday and the case was remanded to 22 April. He was also charged for the Paddock case.

The victim is still in hospital. - Supplied.
