The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Kavango East Region reported a shooting incident in which a security guard allegedly shot and killed a suspected robber at Kasote informal settlement in Rundu on Saturday.

NamPol revealed this in its weekend crime report issued on Saturday, saying that the suspected robber, along with another suspect, allegedly tried to break into a business the guard was protecting.

One of the two suspects died on the spot, while the other one managed to flee, leaving behind some equipment used to gain entry to the property.

The deceased and the fugitive are yet to be identified and police investigations into the matter continue.

In an unrelated incident, a 37-year-old man was arrested after allegedly being found in possession of a 50kg bag of cannabis on Friday night at Muroro village in the Mashare Constituency.

The suspect, who was arrested during a police sting operation, will appear in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
