"It's understood the perpetrators fired a number of shots at Officer Davidson through the side window of the vehicle," the City of Cape Town's Wayne le Roux said in a statement.

The City sent its condolences to Davidson's family, saying they would assist them through "this very difficult time".

The case is being investigated by the Hawks.

The City appealed for members of the public to come forward with any information that could assist in bringing those responsible to book, and is offering a R50 000 reward.
