Police revealed that Andre Notnagel, an off-duty police official, has been fatally wounded before his killers robbed him of his possessions in Gugulethu.

Police attended to a shooting incident last night and found the injured driver sitting in a blue Fiat Uno. Police only established later that the 32-year-old (based at Paarl SAPS) was an off-duty police official.

Captain Elliot Sinyangana says three armed men approached and robbed him of his wallet, cellphone and his service weapon.

“Thereafter they shot him in the chest and fled the scene on foot towards the direction of NY 101,” he said.

Medical emergency services responded to the shooting and attended to Notnagel but he later died on the scene.

The motive for the killing is believed to be robbery, says Sinyangana and no arrests have yet been made. “We hope to arrest the suspects very soon.”

A case-docket of murder and armed robbery has been opened for investigation. Anyone with information should contact Gugulethu SAPS on 021 637 5997 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
