Two male and female suspects shot by the Police over a stolen vehicle: Kuilsriver

Independent Police Investigative Directorate is investigating a case of discharge of
fire arm. It is alleged that last night 30 of August 2021 at about 18pm three SAPS
members of Flying squad 10111 were on their way home when they noticed a suspicious
white vw polo vehicle near strand street kuilsriver opposite the Shell garage.
It is alleged that the South African Police Service(SAPS) members driving in a marked police
vehicle instructed the driver of White polo to stop and the suspect ignored them. Instead he
drove away and the Flying squad members chase after the vehicle. The Suspect vehicle was
then cornered in Antsy Street opposite one of the houses in kuilsriver.
The driver of the suspected vehicle got out of the car and shot at the police members; who
shot back and suspect was shot on his head. The suspect was with a Suspect female
passenger who was with him in the vehicle and she was also shot on her leg. Both suspects
were transported to Tygerberg hospital.
The polo which they drove in was a hijacked car from Cape Town. The Two suspects are in
hospital, alive and are still unknown to the IPID. No one got killed in the incident instead we
have the two suspects under police guard in hospital which nullifies allegations that are
spreading two suspects being shot dead. IPID is investigation the matter.
