On arrival, the officers knocked on the now deceased’s door, identified themselves as police officers and advised him of his crime. The source is quoted as saying:
Mbulavi attempted to retreat into his room and the armed cop fired one shot which hit Mbulavi on the collar bone and died on the spot.
Bako was subsequently arrested under Cr 49/03/21 at Amaveni police station.
