The Leandra Police allegedly shot and injured the wrong suspect

A robbery took place this afternoon in Leandra.

Information about the vehicles involved was not great, but it was reported that a red VW golf GTI was the suspected vehicle that the robbers used.

The Police gave chase and caught up with a red VW just outside Leandra (direction Kinross).

Police shot the wrong suspect

The police opened fire and the driver, he was alone at the time, was struck in the neck and head.

Did the Police shoot the wrong person?

Fortunately, the driver survived the shooting and was rushed to Mediclinic Highveld in Trichardt.


The Bulletin briefly spoke to the driver’s wife and was told that “they shot the wrong guy.” “The victim was on his way to work when the Police shot at him,” she told some of the emergency personnel.

The Bulletin learned from reliable sources that the victim said that he thought that he was being hijacked. He even threw out random items from his vehicle to try and distract the SAPS members.

The Bulletin spoke to the SAPS members to try and establish the sequence of events but was told that the commander (or shift commander) was on his way.

The commander did not arrive within the next 45 minutes.

No statement has been received from the Police yet and the Bulletin has also not been successful yet in establishing contact with the station commander to verify the story. We hope to bring you the official response soon
