IPID is investigating death of a 29 year old woman which happened in Alexandra Township next to London Road. It is alleged that last night Wednesday, 15 January 2020 South African Police officers were chasing a suspicious vehicle within the vicinity of London Road in Alexander Township. It is alleged that a shoot out then ensued between the police and the suspects. In the process the deceased was shot and killed whilst another adult male was also shot and injured and taken to hospital for medical treatment. IPID is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of the deceased. At this point in time we don't know as to whether the police firearm is the one that killed the deceased because it is alleged both the police and the suspects discharged their firearms.
