Durban - Family, friends and colleagues will bid farewell on Wednesday to Durban policeman Malcolm Goodwin, who was killed in an accident at a shooting range.

Goodwin's funeral was due be held at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Musgrave.

The Mercury reported that, according to a witness, officers were attending a training session at a Pietermaritzburg shooting range. The officers were divided into groups to enact various scenarios.

A colleague fired a shot and the bullet struck Goodwin in the chest. He had reportedly been acting as a resisting bystander.

The incident happened last Wednesday.

At the time, friends and colleagues took to Facebook and posted moving tributes to Goodwin, saying he was a friendly and professional policeman.
