Police confirmed that a Pretoria man is in a coma in a Krugersdorp hospital after an incident at a local guest house during which he was shot in the head.
The man and his wife arrived at the guesthouse with another couple on November 12. An argument occurred at around 16:00 becuase their room was still not ready.
Benade said both parties called the police after a struggle. It is alleged that the man was then shot in the head by a police officer. They were not sure how many shots were fired, but added that the incident was being investigated.
Video footage suggest that the man disarmed a police officer and was a threat to the well being of other people.
“section 49 states If there is imminent danger you can protect yourself; that law has not changed yet.”
a case has been registered and the IPID is investigating the conduct of the police officer
