Durban - A lovers' quarrel turned deadly in a Durban shopping mall on Thursday when a policeman shot his girlfriend and then himself, police said.

The two were arguing in the Pavillion Mall shortly after midday before the police officer took out his gun, police spokesperson Thulani Zwane said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Santi Steinmann said the two were declared dead at the mall, one of Durban's busiest.

Nobody else was injured.

    As a policeman myself I can sadly confirm that this type of incident is common place and increasing...there is help out there for cops but sadly some choose condolences to both families

    This is not really about police shooting people,please don't be confused cause just now you will confuse everyone. Lets keep it simple and to the point. Its a lover who works for SAPS that shot his girlfriend and himself. This is common among many citizens,whether it be SAPS employees or not. And no, I'm not a policeman! My Condolences to those involved.
