Earlier today five armed suspects robbed a store in the Isipingo area in Durban. Saps members reacted immediately and chased after the suspects who fled towards a informal settlement. The suspects were cornered in a bush where a heavy exchange of gun fire occurred.
In the aftermath 1 suspect lay dead, 1 lay wounded and 1 Saps member attached to the Dog unit wounded in the leg. The member was shortly thereafter airlifted by the Saps airwing whilst shots were still being fired.
Excellent work done by all on the ground and those in the air. We wish the wounded member a speedy and complete recovery!
