Jeffreys Bay - An off-duty policewoman from Jeffreys Bay was shot dead allegedly by her security guard husband after a heated argument on Thursday morning. The husband's body was also found at the scene.

Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Gerda Swart said the two were believed to have argued in the early hours of Thursday morning at the 36-year-old woman's home in Strelitzia Street.

Swart said police were called to the scene after shots were heard.
