Three suspects in their early twenties have been arrested in connection with the shooting of Evangeline Brockman, 42, in Delft.
Brockman’s husband Sidney told the Cape Argus his wife was waiting for him in the car while he was locking up his tavern in Delft, when three people approached him and asked him for R20.
“I went inside to get the money for them, but as I turned I suddenly heard two shots going off and I rushed outside. The next thing, my wife was lying outside her car. They stole her tablet and ran away. They were two men and a woman.
“When I got to the car Evangeline was still alive. She died in my arms. She was a wonderful wife. We were married for five years. She was a lovely person and loved teaching,” he said.
Dawn Petersen, principal of Blomvlei Primary school in Hanover Park where Brockman was a teacher for 10 years, said the school and community are shocked.
