Cop dies in shootout outside JHB school


One police reservist was killed and another officer was injured outside Northcliff Primary School, Johannesburg, on Wednesday.

A suspect was also killed during the shootout and three others were arrested by authorities. Another suspect tried to commit suicide when he was cornered by police and is in a critical condition in hospital.

The shootout started when police tried to stop a suspicious looking Mercedes-Benz on Mimosa Road. When the car crashed, the five suspects fled into nearby properties.

One suspect was caught inside the school. Authorities also recovered five guns.

A local security company said the school was instructed to keep the children inside until the area is cleared.

The injured officer was airlifted in a police helicopter.
