کیپ ٹاؤن ۔ ایمبولینس پر حملہ۔ ایک شخص ہلاک۔ پولیس آفیسر شدید زخمی 

Cape Town – A suspected criminal was killed and a police officer critically injured when an ambulance was ambushed in Gugulethu, Western Cape Emergency Medical Services (EMS) said on Thursday.

A call was received at 22:10 on Wednesday for a patient who was coughing and vomiting in NY147 in Gugulethu, Western Cape EMS spokesperson Robert Daniels said in a statement.

Because the Western Cape health department had declared the area a “red zone”, due to the high crime rate, the ambulance needed a police escort.

When the officers and the ambulance arrived, five men approached the police and demanded their guns.

A shoot-out ensued, during which a 30-year-old man was killed and a police officer wounded. The officer was taken to a local hospital.

The alleged patient was never found. It was believed the call was part of a planned ambush, Daniels told News24.

Western Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said a case of attempted murder and illegal possession of a firearm had been opened.

No arrests had been made. Police watchdog Ipid would investigate the man’s death, Rwexana said.
