Shamielah Arendse, 26 years old, was a deceased police officer. The Constable was apparently killed yesterday while she was off duty.
Delft, Cape Town native Shamielah was apparently out in the street near her house when gunfire rang out. Unfortunately, the bullets proved fatal. Because of their jobs, police personnel are likewise vulnerable to harm, as this event demonstrates.
No one has been apprehended in connection with the incident, and it is yet unknown whether or not the attack was targeted. It's unfathomable that law enforcement officials are under danger despite their heroic efforts on our behalf.
We hope that the person or people responsible for this atrocity are found and brought to justice.
Users' reactions to the incident were widely posted on social media once the report went viral. Please see the attached screenshot for their responses;
