Pretoria - A policeman was arrested on Friday hours after he allegedly shot dead his girlfriend and another man in Mabopane, north of Pretoria, Gauteng police said.
On Thursday night, the 27-year-old constable went to the 21-year-old woman's house and found another man there, Lt-Col Katlego Mogale said.
The policeman kicked down the door and allegedly assaulted the man, after which a case of malicious damage to property was laid against him.
Around 7am on Friday, the policeman returned to the woman's house and another argument broke out.
“He took out his service pistol and fired shots (at) both the victims and fled the scene.”
Mogale said both the woman and the 25-year-old man were killed.
The policeman fled in a red state Chevrolet Aveo, but was arrested in Potgietersrus, Limpopo.
Gauteng police had alerted authorities in both Limpopo and Mpumalanga to be on the look-out for the man.
“Police found in his possession his service pistol and recovered the state vehicle he was travelling in.”
He would appear in Soshanguve Magistrate's Court on Monday.
