Four Metro Police Constables have been arrested following the discovery of a body of a Metro Police officer in Cape Town

According to Metro Police spokesperson Pieter Cronje five Constables from the Hillstar Station in Area West were on patrol in Lavender Hill at approximately 1am on Friday morning when a shooting incident broke out.

"Four officers left the scene, but returned later. They went off duty at 6am in the morning," said Mr Cronje.

However, according to Mr Cronje a Metro Police Constable who was earlier on patrol with the four at the time of the shooting, was found dead in the afternoon at Zeekoevlei.

The Constable had bullet wounds.

Mr Cronje said the four members will be suspended while the investigation by the South African Police Services and the Independent Complaints Directorate is carried out.

"The Metro Police will also conduct its own internal investigation into the matter.

"The four were arrested by South African Police Services in Steenberg and are in police custody," said Mr Cronje. - BuaNews
