Se­cu­rity guard mur­der: teens held


TWO more sus­pects were ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the mur­der of a se­cu­rity guard in Stel­len­bosch, po­lice spokesper­son Joseph Swart­booi said.

He said a firearm pos­si­bly used in the shoot­ing was re­trieved from the sus­pects.

Swart­booi said, the sus­pects aged 17 and 18, are ex­pected to ap­pear in the Stel­len­bosch mag­is­trate’s court on a charge of mur­der.

The ar­rest fol­lows a day after a 53-year-old se­cu­rity guard suf­fered fa­tal in­juries in a shoot­ing in­ci­dent in Lin­ton road in Stel­len­bosch.

ER24 Emer­gency Med­i­cal Ser­vices Spokesper­son Ineke van Huyssteen said when emer­gency ser­vices ar­rived at the scene the fire brigade was al­ready there.

Paramedics per­formed car­diopul­monary re­sus­ci­ta­tion (CPR) on a man ly­ing in the road.

They found that the man had sus­tained gun­shot wounds to his body and he was in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

“ER24 paramedics con­tin­ued with the CPR.

“Un­for­tu­nately, the man suc­cumbed to his in­juries a short while later and was de­clared dead on scene,” Van Huyssteen said. |
