The man, from Strand, is now recovering in hospital, while the police’s watchdog the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) has launched an investigation into the incident.
In the four-and-a-half minute video, Daylin Pepe, 19, from Tarentaalplaas, is manhandled by two uniformed officers as he resists getting into a police van.
A large crowd of about 100 people gathers and there are shouts from the community for cops to leave Pepe alone.
“Hy het niks op hom nie” and “los hom, hoekom slaan julle hom” can be heard from women in the growing crowd, with people urging others to record the incident on their cellphones.
Three men then tried to break Pepe away from cops, and then two shots are fired.
Pepe is seen falling to the ground, clutching his leg and screaming in pain.
“They wanted to prove a point. Hulle wil net onse kinnes so moer.”
Ipid spokesman Moses Dlamini confirms: “This matter has been reported to Ipid on Saturday morning with different versions of the events.
