Officer held after double shooting


October 29 2009 at 11:35PM


A traffic officer from Koster in the North West shot and killed his girlfriend and wounded her sister on Thursday night, the North West public safety department said.


Police arrested the 39-year-old officer near Silwerkrans after he had shot at the police earlier in the evening, spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said.


The officer's car overturned on a gravel road between Madikwe and Groot Mariko while fleeing the crime scene. Police found him through a vehicle tracking system.


"Police had to wait for backup in order to engage him and attempt to convince him to hand himself over."


The officer, stationed in Koster, allegedly shot and killed his 30-year-old girlfriend during an argument around 6pm. He also shot her 20-year-old sister in the arm with his service pistol.


The North West police confirmed the incident. - Sapa
