In Ivory Park on 8 may 2019, at about 04:00, police arrested four suspects in connection with murder. It is alleged that in the early hours of 7 May 2019, in Ivory Park Extension Two, the deceased aged 47 stole two unlicensed firearms from two of the suspects under the pretence of wanting to commit a robbery.

The suspects, whose ages range from 30 to 40, are alleged to have visited the deceased at his hiding place, demanded the firearms back and eventually ended up shooting him multiple times on the upper body.

The suspects were arrested in Ivory Park. During the arrest three firearms, including a police issued Z88, were recovered.

The arrested suspects are expected to appear in court on soon facing charges of murder and possession of unlicensed firearms.

Gauteng Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Elias Mawela commended the Ivory Park detectives for arresting the suspects within a short space time.
