This morning a combined operation was planned, where the council demolished an illegal structure. The council, air wing, local SAPS, dog unit and Metro Police were on the scene.
While the demolition took place, community members cast stones at SAPS and Metro Police officers.

Community members later shot flares and live rounds at Police.
Police retaliated by firing rubber bullets. Hout Bay Police spokesperson Tanya Lesch said, “Two arrests were made after a Metro Police officer was shot in his left hand and was taken to hospital”.

The men have been detained for public violence and the shooting incident will be investigated further.
