A second police officer who was injured in a shooting in Hillbrow died in hospital on Saturday, Gauteng police said.
“He died this morning (Saturday),” said Lt-Col Katlego Mogale.
Last week, two policemen were patrolling the area at night when they noticed a suspicious vehicle and approached it.
A gunman inside the car opened fire on them at the corner of King George and Wolmarans Streets.
One of the officers died on the scene.
