By Megan Hartogh

One man was killed and three policemen were wounded, while police were performing an operation in the Mfuleni area on Tuesday morning. The operation reportedly forms part of the SAPS’s ongoing investigation into taxi related violence. According to police spokesperson, Bernadine Steyn, the 25-year-old suspect opened fire on police officers at a house in Drift Sands, Mfuleni. Steyn says that it was when police officers returned fire that the suspect was shot in the right leg and abdomen, and died on the scene. The injured police officers are in a stable condition in a local hospital. A case of attempted murder and an Inquest Investigation into the incident is being investigated. A case of possession of an unlicensed firearm will also be investigated after police confiscated a R5 shotgun and two 38 special taurus.
