Cop Killers nailed after tip-off

JMPD officers arrested two suspects during a join operation for the murder of one of our JMPD officers in 13 February 2018.
In February, one of our JMPD officers were brutally shot in the head when he tried to stop a minibus from being hijacked in Booysens.
The officer passed away of his injuries in hospital.
Following the incident, I announced that the City is offering a R100 000 cash reward for information which would lead to the successful arrest and conviction of the murderers.
Last night our Department of Public Safety had a breakthrough following a tip-off. Our JMPD officers consulted the investigating officers at the South African Police Service (SAPS) and planned a join operation which led to the arrest of two male suspects at Zola Extension 10 in Soweto.
MMC for Public Safety, Cllr Michael Sun has informed me that both suspects were positively identified, and that the one suspect was identified as the gunman who pulled the trigger.
“I wish to thank the member of the public who provided us with this information, and I commend the Johannesburg Central SAPS Detectives and JMPD for making this breakthrough. I also thank the Lenasia CPF members and MNH Security for assisting with the joint operation” said MMC Sun.
Police is now looking for the third suspect who is still on the run.
I wish to state unreservedly that we will hunt down every suspect who is involved with the attacks or killings of our police and EMS officers. Our Department of Public Safety together with the JMPD Chief of Police David Tembe will not rest until these criminals are caught and receive the harshest prison sentences for their heinous crimes.
The two suspects are currently being detained at SAPS and will appear in court as soon as possible.
