At about 1230h. today police say that Joel Ross, who was armed with a cutlass, attacked a policeman who was in the process of arresting him at Kuru Kuru, Soesdyke/Linden Highway. This caused the rank to resort to the use of force and Ross was shot to his body, police said. He succumbed to his injuries.
Ross was wanted in relation to a matter of rape committed at Haslington, ECD, on April 21, 2014.
Investigations are in progress.
