An investigating officer attached to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) has been fatally shot during a robbery at his house at Jakkalsdans in Cullinan, Pretoria.
A group of men arrived at Mandla Mahlangu’s plot in the early hours and pointed a gun at him and a worker.
The suspects shot Mahlangu and fled – taking his white bakkie and some household items.
The Gauteng Provincial Investigation Unit is investigating robbery as a possible motive. No arrests have as yet been made.
IPID says it cannot divulge any further information on the incident as it may jeopardise the investigation.
