Seven Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department (EMPD) officers appeared in the Tsakane Magistrate's Court on Monday in connection with a fatal shooting during a raid.
The officers allegedly raided a shack in Langaville, Extension 6, where a 19-year-old man was shot dead and a 29-year-old man was injured on Thursday.
The officers are Laurens Daniel Venter, 49, Nkululeko Walter Mtetwa, 36, Daniel Eric van Wyk, 39, Gideon Johannes Myburg, 60, Justin Sibusiso Ncube, 50, Thamodhran Pillay, 50, and Eugene Phillip Raubenheimer, 62.
They are accused of murder, attempted murder, assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and defeating the ends of justice.
National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson, Lumka Mahanjana, said the officers were arrested on Friday and Saturday after they handed themselves in to authorities.
She said the defence told the court that Raubenheimer had a pending charge of malicious damage to property, for which he would be appearing in the Boksburg Magistrate's Court on 23 September.
The case has been postponed to Wednesday for the officers' bail application.
Mahanjana said the State would oppose bail.
News24 reported that the spokesperson for the Independent Police Investigative Directorate, Lizzy Suping, said the officers found four men during the raid. They allegedly assaulted two of the men in the shack, after which gunshots were fired.
One man was taken to hospital, after which the incident was reported at the Tsakane police station. Later, it was discovered that one of the men had been dumped behind a shack.
Suping said a post-mortem was conducted at the Spring Pathology Services on Friday.
Mahanjana told News24 the details of the case against the seven, as well as the pending case against Raubenheimer, would be heard on Wednesday.
