Story: June, 30th, 2022.

It's heartbreaking to hear that another officer has been killed. In the last few months, in the fourth quarter, 27 officers died across the country. It has to stop, any witnesses who may have information should come forward, this is becoming a trend. Police officer Shamiela Arendse, 26, was shot dead by an unidentified suspect Tuesday night while standing outside her home with friends.

According to police, initial reports of the incident appear to be rare. However, the investigator followed all instructions. Witnesses to the incident allege that Officer Arendse was with three other people outside his home when unidentified gunmen appeared and opened fire on Gilo Road, Leiden and Delft.

Delft Police have opened the homicide case for investigation and detectives from the Priority Crime Investigation Directorate have taken over the investigation. But still no arrest has been made.

According to Arendse's friends and roommates the shooting was accidental. There were people in the mosque and they were passing by. They just stood outside and never thought anything bad would happen. Suddenly someone started shooting, from an unknown direction and she just ran following her instinct.

She was a very quiet person who only communicated easily with people and don't deserve to die like this. It's hard for me to imagine what happened. Arendse's mother, Surita Arendse is still heartbroken and in denial as she claims the news of her daughter's death is false.

According to her, Miela moved there last December. She remember visiting him and not liking the place, so she decided to stay with her othet two daughters. She don't think it's safe there and they're too young, she never thought she was going to be killed there either.

May the soul of the departed rest in peace. She died in service of her nation and I believe her family should be compensated. May her family find comfort even in the death of their beloved.
