A Cape Town policeman shot dead his girlfriend and committed suicide in Mfuleni early yesterday evening. It is reported that the officer was attached to the Crime Intelligence Unit.

The policeman fled to his own home where he shot himself in the head. The Independent Complaints Directorate will investigate the tragedy.
In Khayelitsha, police have appealed for assistance from the public in the search for a five-year-old boy who went missing from the vicinity of his home in the Green Point informal settlement early on Monday evening.
