An armed robber was shot yesterday morning around 1:48am while fighting with a risident in Radiokop, Roodepoort.

Early this morning at approximately 01:48 our Control room received a panic/ alarm from a resident in a complex in Radiokop. We dispatched our reaction vehicles. They started searching from the bottom of the complex when they heard dogs bark at the top . They ran to the top of the complex.

When they got to top the resident’s wife saw them and shouted “please assist my husband he is fighting suspects”. One of our reaction officers took the lead and entered the house . He saw the resident fighting with the suspect. The suspect had a firearm in his hand he pointed it at him.

The suspect was shot by our reaction officer and the firearm taken away . The suspect was arrested soon after.
The entry point into the complex was over the back wall from another complex. The suspects removed the bricks from top of the wall to gain access.
