The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has reported that police officers shot a member of a 4-member gang that descended on Jerera Growth Point in Masvingo and robbed a family of some properties.

The suspect was shot in the armpit and died while his accomplices escaped. Police said in a statement:

The ZRP is investigating two armed robbery cases which occurred at Jerera G/point, Masvingo on 15/10/21 at about 0159 hrs, where four unknown suspects armed with an unidentified pistol, pick, wooden broom and a log stormed a home and demanded cash.
