The South African Police Service (SAPS) has tabled an offer of R100,000 reward for anyone with an information that could be of help in the arrest of the suspects who are involved in the murder of police sergeant – Donavon Prins.

Prins (34) was murdered while on duty in Lavender Hill in June 2019. It happened that he and a fellow officer were after suspects in the area when gunshots were opened on them.

Prins sustained injuries and later passed out in hospital.

The sergeant is survived by his wife, Shaldene, who is a police constable.

Shaldene said:

β€œWe were both on duty. I was inside the Client Service Centre, but I monitored the radio and I heard the gun shots went off; and a few minutes after that I heard his partner scream over the radio, calling for help and mentioning that his partner Prins was shot.”

The suspects are still out there at large. Anyone with tangible information that could result to the arrest of the arrests is encouraged to contact the investigating officer Detective Gavin Scheepers on 071 673 2289 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
