WESTERN CAPE – Members attached to the Western Cape Flying Squad stopped five suspects in their tracks this morning.

The members followed up on information of a stolen white Chevrolet that was driving in Goodwood and after searching the area they spotted the vehicle with five occupants. The driver of the vehicle sped-off in an attempt to evade their arrest when a high speed chase ensued. The suspects shot at the police who retaliated. Four suspects were shot and wounded, and were transported to hospital under police guard for treatment. Police confiscated two prohibited firearms, ammunition and the vehicle that was reported stolen in in Muizenberg.

Once they have been charged, the suspects are expected to appear in the Goodwood magistrate’s court.
