The man shot and killed during student protests in Johannesburg on Wednesday has been identified as Mthokozisi Ntumba.
Ntumba, who had been visiting a clinic in Braamfontein at the time of the protests, died after he was shot, allegedly by police.
The incident is under investigation by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID). Four IPID investigators were deployed to the scene on Wednesday, spokesperson Ndileka Cola told News24.
An eyewitness who was waiting at a nearby bus stop told News24 some students who were protesting in Braamfontein were taken to a clinic in De Beer Street.
While they were there, police in a nyala arrived.
Video footage of the incident seemingly shows people running away as armed police aim in their direction.
Ntumba, who was walking out of the clinic, was hit.
Cola said Ntumba was a husband and father of four.
"It is alleged that the young man, who is a civilian, who was not part of the protest, had just left the doctor's rooms when he was allegedly shot by the police officers," said Cola.
Numerous eyewitness statements have so far been collected and investigators have confiscated firearms. These will be taken for ballistic analysis.
The investigation is still under way.
