The Police in Polokwane in Limpopo Province have arrested a 34-year-old man suspected to have shot and killed his wife in the Parking area of Shoprite Supermarket at the corner of Grobler and Landdross Mare streets.
Security Watch Africa (SWA) gathered that Police received a call about the incident and on arrival, the bullet riddle body of a 32-year-old woman was found inside a motor vehicle.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the deceased, who is believed to be from Seshego Township, was together with a certain man inside the said vehicle when her husband arrived.
An argument allegedly ensued and the husband took out a firearm and shot the woman several times, and she died instantly.
According to Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, the man who is reported to have been together with the deceased, allegedly fled from the scene and his identity is still subject for investigation.
“Police later recovered the firearm believed to have been used in the murder. The firearm will be subjected to ballistic examination to determine if it was used in the commission of other serious crimes.
”Its lawfulness will also form part of the unfolding investigations. The motive for the killing is unknown at this stage but domestic violence cannot be ruled out. Members of the community are urged to seek professional assistance when confronted by domestic or relationship challenges and desist from resorting to extreme measures which often lead to serious injuries or the loss of life.
“The suspect will be appearing in Polokwane magistrate’s court soon, facing a charge of murder,” Mojapelo said.
