Cape Town - A police officer has been gunned down in Bishop Lavis in what is believed to be a gang hit.
The 54-year-old lieutenant-colonel was attached to the provincial Firearm, Liquor and Second-Hand Goods Control (FLASH) Unit and was shot as he reversed out of his driveway in 11th Street.
It is believed a lone gunman approached the driver’s window and opened fire.
Lt.-Col. André Kay was shot five times in the head and upper body, and was found slumped over in the passenger seat of his light blue Chevrolet Aveo.
He was alone in the car and 10 cartridges were found on the scene, five of which inside the car.
