No headway has been made in finding the killer of a Cape Town cop despite police offering a R100 000 reward for information.
Yesterday, the Anti-Gang Unit renewed their offer for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer of Sergeant Donovan Prins.
Prins, 34, was a member of the Crime Prevention Unit (CPU) at Steenberg SAPS.
He was gunned down while pursuing suspects in Fawley Court, Lavender Hill, in June 2019.
Gangsters ambushed Prins, who was driving a SAPS vehicle, and shot him at close range.
His partner rushed him to Melomed Hospital in Tokai where he died.
His wife, Shaldene, who is also a SAPS member stationed at Steenberg, listened on the police radio how her husband was killed, said Police Minister Bheki Cele when he visited the family’s home in Seawinds.
Police spokesman Colonel André Traut says: “The Anti-Gang Unit is seeking the assistance of the public for information that will lead to the arrest of the suspects who were responsible for the murder of Sergeant Donovan Prins.
“On 24 June 2019, while performing official duties with a colleague, Prins pursued suspects in Lavender Hill, who opened fire at him.
“He was wounded and admitted to hospital where he later succumbed to death.
“The suspects fled and are sought by police.
“A reward of R100 000 is offered for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.”
Any person with information that can lead cops to the suspects is requested to contact the investigating officer, Detective Captain Gavin Scheepers, 071 673 2289 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111 with their anonymous tip-off.
