Two police officers were last night shot dead in Nyanga while on duty.  Western Cape Police Commissioner Arno Lamoer said the two officers were called out to a compliant about a hijacked vehicle in the area. 

When they arrived on the scene they confirmed that the vehicle was indeed hijacked. 

Lamoer said while the officers were waiting in the police vehicle for a tow truck to come and pick up the vehicle for further investigation, they were shot by an unknown suspect and their firearms stolen.    

“We really want to urge the community to come forward with information that could lead to the arrest and successful conviction of whoever did this” Lamoer added.

WC Police Commissioner Arno Lamoer said there is a reward currently of R100 000 for any information to this effect.  He added that this is a cowardly act by criminals to attack the state and attack the people that must serve the community if Nyanga.
