Polokwane - Limpopo police fatally wounded a suspect and arrested another when they managed to foil an armed robbery in progress in Apel.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said a business robbery took place at USave Supermarket on Wednesday evening at about 6:05pm.

"According to the information, five suspects, armed with firearms entered U Save Supermarket and accosted the staff members, threatening them with firearms," Mojapelo said. "They started emptying the tills and ransacking the main office. They then ordered the store manager to open the safe and took an undisclosed amount of money."

"The police were summoned and swiftly managed to corner and apprehend one suspect inside the Supermarket. Four suspects managed to flee in different directions whilst the police attempted to apprehend them. The arrested suspect, who is from ga-Masemola, was just released on parole on 30 November 2017 after serving eight years imprisonment for business robbery."

"As the suspects were fleeing from the scene on foot, they allegedly started firing at the police and a shoot-out ensued, resulting in the second suspect being fatally wounded. A .38 special Revolver, 21 cellphones and cash amount of money were recovered next to his body.

In a 1st world country, this will be major news. In Africa though, people worry more about a certain twit posted on twitter by some twit #DonaldTrump

Like mowing innocent people down at malls/schools/clubs/concerts every few weeks? Or are you referring to the country that manufactures fake news about in its quest for world dominance? Yes, your home country.
