A woman in her 30s was shot and killed during a robbery at a
Boksburg cafe on Thursday evening, Johannesburg paramedics said.
Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the woman and her husband
stopped to buy bread at the cafe on the corner of Rondebult and
Gunmen were robbing the store when the couple arrived. They
fired shots and the woman was fatally wounded.
"Paramedics arrived within minutes of the call, but tragically
the lady had died before their arrival."
The husband was not hurt but visibly traumatised, Botha said.
Senior Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said the woman was a metro
police officer in the motor cycle unit. Her name was K V Makhuma (28).
"The robbers attempted to hijack her car outside the shop and
then opened fire on her and her husband. She was shot in the neck and
died on the scene."-Sapa
