Cape Town - Cape Town police have denied rumours that a suspect was arrested in Atlantis in connection with the assassination of lawyer Pete Mihalik, 50, on Tuesday morning.
The defence lawyer, well known for representing criminal underworld figures, was shot in the head while dropping off his children at their private school Reddam House in Green Point.
His Mercedes had a single bullet hole through the passenger window, although neighbours at the scene reported hearing two gunshots.
Mihalik's son was wounded in the incident and rushed to hospital. He also had a 16-year-old daughter. Mihalik's wife, who suffered from depression, committed suicide three years ago.
Police spokesperson Noloyiso Rwexana denied rumours that a suspect had already been arrested, and said a statement would be released in the event of an arrest.
