It is believed that the official shot himself in his office at 90 Plein Street at around 12:00.
This, after he apparently received news that his employment contract would not be renewed.
Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Police, Francois Beukman, said the incident raised serious questions about police deployment at Parliament, as well as procedures in place and the general operational readiness of SA Police Service (SAPS) members.
