ZRP has revealed that Police officers responding to a tip-off of an illegal gathering in Mvurwi ended up being involved in a high-speed chase and a shooting incident in pursuit of their suspects.
According to ZRP, the officers had to shoot the tires of the suspect’s car in order to prevent them from fleeing the scene of the crime and after they searched them, they discovered they were in possession of illegal drugs.
The ZRP is investigating circumstances surrounding a shooting incident which occurred on 1/2/21 in Mvurwi where 2 suspects were arrested following a speed chase.
Members of the police attended a crime scene following a tip off involving a gathering in clear violation of the Government’s national lockdown regulations at a certain homestead. Some of the suspects drove off at a high speed after noticing the police.
A Honda Prelude motor vehicle with 3 suspects remained at the scene and was later driven towards one of the police officers in a high speed attempting to hit him. Other Police officers pursued the suspects, fired warning shots and ordered the suspects to stop but to no avail.
Police shot two left tyres of the suspects’ vehicle and managed to arrest 2 suspects who were found in possession of dagga. Investigations are in progress and the arrested suspects are assisting the police with investigations. #notocrime
