"Reward of up to R150 000 is on offer 4 any info that can lead to arrest," the SA Police Service tweeted.

The 27-year-old Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper was shot dead at about 8pm last night.

The incident happened at a house in the Zamo Section in Vosloorus.

“There were 7 people inside the house. Two suspects went into the house, one remained outside. The 3 fled on foot after the shooting,” SAPS tweeted.

No one else was injured.

“We can assure all South Africans that we will do all [we] can to bring Meyiwa’s killers [to] book,” they said.

Captain of both club and country, Meyiwa played for Orlando Pirates on Saturday at the Orlando stadium in their Telkom Knockout 4-1 quarterfinal win over Ajax Cape Town.

Sports minister Fikile Mbalula said the ministry would be in contact with Meyiwa’s family before issuing a full statement.
