A 25-year-old attempted murder suspect on Wednesday handed himself over to Port Elizabeth police, after hearing that his arrest was imminent

Police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu said on Wednesday a minibus was travelling in Rensburg Street in Bethelsdorp with three passengers.

Naidu said that as the taxi driver stopped to drop off an 18-year old man, a shot was fired.

“The taxi driver, 26, intervened and reversed in an attempt to shield the teenager. The shooter, an Upstand Dogs member, then fired a shot at the driver before running off,” said Naidu.

No one was injured and two cases of attempted murder were opened.
