Someone got out of the driver’s seat and moments later he heard two shots fired and decided to turn around and see what was going on. He then called Lemon for back up.

“When I arrived on the scene we were told that a man in a blue jacket had fired the shots and fled the scene. I went to search the area and found a man fitting the description hiding behind the petrol station and speaking on the phone. I phoned Gensen and told him I had found him,” said Lemon. He said he then approached the man and grabbed his arm, but the man pulled out a gun. The two then wrestled for the gun and during the altercation Lemon said he heard two shots fired.

“So many crimes such as murder, attempted murder and robberies, are being committed with unlicensed fire arms which end up in the hands of ruthless criminals who won’t hesitate to use them. We will also act against those individuals who fail to safeguard their licensed fire-arms according to prescripts.”
