The De Deur SAPS arrested a murder suspect on Christmas Day at an estate in De Deur. Police spokesman constable Tlaleng Moloi, said in a statement that the deceased and eyewitnesses were apparently sitting outside a house in the Lakeside estate on Saturday morning when three suspects arrived at the scene in a silver Mercedes Viano.

Two of the suspects got out of the vehicle and fired shots at the deceased. The deceased was shot and died of injuries at the scene. Moloi further said the police followed up on information and later arrested one of the suspects at a tavern in Residensia. The suspect will soon appear in court in Vereeniging on a charge of murder. The police are still looking for the other two suspects who were involved in the incident.
