Nelspruit - A policeman will appear in court on Friday on charges of
shooting his colleague's wife in the chest during a children's birthday
party and then threatening to commit suicide.

The 34-year-old constable had invited his colleague and his colleague's wife
to his child's third birthday party in Thekwane South outside Nelspruit on
Tuesday night.

His colleague, who works with him at KaNyamazane police station, allegedly
gave him his gun for safekeeping, but at the end of the party, the cop
allegedly denied any knowledge of the gun.

When the colleague's wife intervened and demanded that her husband's gun be
returned, she was shot in the chest.

She's in intensive care at the Nelspruit medi-clinic.

Police had to send a negotiating team to the scene when the cop threatened
to commit suicide.

He was arrested and the missing gun was found in a washing bowl, wrapped in
a cloth.

The policeman will appear in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court on charges of
attempted murder, theft of the gun and unlawful possession of a firearm.
