Attempted murder suspects arrested
In the early hours of Monday morning, swift action by our armed response officer, B19, led to the apprehension of two suspects involved in a shooting incident at a business premises in Uitenhage.
Upon receiving information about the incident, Officer B19 wasted no time and immediately contacted our control room. Concerned about the victim’s safety, he requested the urgent assistance of the South African Police Service (SAPS).
Upon arrival Officer B19 managed to detain one of the suspects, while the SAPS apprehended the second perpetrator. This collaborative effort ensured that the suspects were quickly taken into custody.
Our team’s priority was to attend to the victim’s needs. Officer B19 remained attentive, ensuring that medical assistance was swiftly summoned to aid the victim who sustained a gunshot wound to the stomach. The victim was promptly transported to the hospital for immediate medical attention.
Both suspects have been arrested.
We take this opportunity to commend Officer B19 and the SAPS for their swift response and dedication to protecting our community.
