One suspect killed in police shootout, one suspect arrested

Hillcrest police arrested a 26-year-old suspect for attempted murder, possession of suspected stolen property as well as a housebreaking and theft case that occurred in the area a week ago.
In the early hours of this morning, police were conducting an operation aimed at crime prevention and arresting wanted suspects. Whilst proceeding along M13 highway police officers spotted a vehicle with three occupants. Police instructed them to stop but they stopped and fled on foot into the bushes. A shootout ensued which resulted in one suspect (25) being fatally wounded. A 26-year-old suspect was arrested. The third suspect fled into the thick bushes and managed to evade arrest.
An investigation revealed that the suspect's vehicle was stolen from Hillcrest. It is alleged that a house in Ridge Road was broken into and a vehicle, household items and a handbag with valuables was stolen. A case of housebreaking and theft was opened at the Hillcrest police station for investigation.
The arrested suspect has been charged for attempted murder and possession of suspected stolen property. He is appearing today in the Pinetown Magistrates Court. He will also be profiled to determine if he can be linked to other related incidents.
