When the police arrived, they were confronted by a group of men who attacked them.

“The police fired shots to try and defuse the situation but six police officers were already injured after being assaulted by the group of men.

“The police withdrew from the house and then suddenly the men took out a dead person from the house and placed it on the bonnet of the police vehicle.”

Makhubela said while no one was arrested, a case of murder, attempted murder and assault was being investigated by the Vanderbijlpark police station.

He said the police were still searching for the suspects who assaulted the police.
