Yeoville – Police have arrested three men after a man was shot dead at corner Raleigh and Fortesque streets recently.
Yeoville police spokesperson Captain Sifiso Mabizela said officers responded to a report about a man lying on the pavement with a bullet wound in the head at about 2am.
“Paramedics arrived and certified the man dead at the scene. A witness indicated that the deceased was known to three suspects. The deceased argued with the main suspect who apologised. When the deceased did not respond, the suspect with his two accomplices went back to their victim about 10 minutes later. The main suspect allegedly shot the victim at the back of his head, and fled together with his accomplices,” Mabizela said.
He added that the police followed information that led to a guest house in Dunbar Street.
“They arrested the three men and recovered the firearm that was allegedly used in the crime. They face charges of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, harbouring a suspect and defeating the ends of justice,” he said.
