#FarmAttack: SURVIVES: HARTBEESFONTEIN: Mr Johnson was attacked on his property, shots were fired at him by 3 black attackers

Oostermoed Security Reports . At 07H45 on the 19th May 2016 Mr Johnson was attacked on his property shots were fired at him by 3 suspects. A Panic alarm was activated and Oostermoed responded. Upon arrival  3 suspects with weapons fled and shot at our reaction officers . We shot back and one suspect was seriously wounded. Saps from Harties / Hekpoort arrived and took over the scene. Waterwing from Harties arrived and searched the river bed and found the suspects weapon in the river. Saps dog unit arrived and searched the area. Another suspect was arrested, with the help of dogs, supported by the community patrolling and blocking off the roads . Suspects are sought for other attacks as well and have been operating in our area now for 3 months emanating from Johannesburg / Hillbrow. Subsequently the case of attempted murder against our officers has been dropped and ruled a fair shooting by Saps management from North West . We opened a case of attempted murder against the suspects as they shot at us. Saps are taking this very seriously as " FARM ATTACKS" is a priority crime. Thanks again to the -SAPS , Rural safety , and the Community who assisted us . Together we can make a difference . WELL DONE and Congrats to all - from us all at Conserv
