Johannesburg - A third man has been arrested in connection with the murder of an Ekurhuleni metro police department (EMPD) volunteer, a spokesperson said.

The man was cornered and apprehended in Katlehong on Saturday, said EMPD spokesperson Inspector Kobeli Mokheseng.

The volunteer was shot and killed on 10 September in Katlehong. About a week later, two men were arrested in the Mosiliki and Mopedi sections for the murder.

The man was expected to appear soon in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court.
