CAP’s Command Centre received a call from a witness reporting an Armed Robbery in progress. CAP’s Specialised Intervention Unit (SIU) and additional resources were dispatched immediately and backup was strategically placed in the immediate surrounds.
An overwhelming response from CAP resulted in the suspects fleeing. A high-speed car chase and shoot out ensued between the suspects and CAP, resulting in the suspects crashing their vehicle and one suspect sustaining gunshot wounds.
Two suspects were apprehended as well as the suspect motor vehicle and two firearms recovered on scene.
One of CAP's SIU Officers also sustained moderate injuries and has been taken to hospital for further treatment. We wish him well in his recovery.
As this story develops, CAP will provide updates as our Tactical Debriefing Intelligence Operatives are currently on scene obtaining further information.
Well done to all involved and a special mention to our valiant and fearless heroes as as well as the vigilant resident who called the Command Centre.
