    Police officer responding to domestic violence call

    April 11, 2020


    A police officer was shot dead in Johannesburg on Thursday night while responding to a complaint of domestic violence.According to police, 33-year-old Constable Percy Ramalepe and his colleague responded to the domestic violence call in Hluhluwe Road in Paulshof, where they found a 60-year-old man in the driveway of his home.

    “When approached, the suspect who appeared to be relatively calm, opened the gate to his home for the crew to enter, where they also found the complainant, the suspect’s wife,” police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said in a statement.

    “Once inside, the suspect without warning produced a shotgun and shot constable Ramalepe.”

    “While awaiting backup, a second gunshot was heard and moments later the crew member went back inside the yard to investigate.”

    Naidoo said that Ramalepe was found lying on the floor. He said the body of the suspect, who is believed to have turned the gun on himself, was also found inside the house with the constable’s pistol.

    Both men were declared dead at the scene.
