TWO police officers have been shot at by unknown suspects while responding to a scene of crime in Sekhukhune in Limpopo.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said as they were responding, a Toyota Etios came speeding from behind and overtook them.
He said the cops switched on the blue lights, in an effort to stop them.
The vehicle suddenly stopped and two rifle wielding suspects jumped out and started spraying the police vehicle with bullets, concentrating on the crew side.
A 26-year-old Constable, who was in the van crew, was hit on the side of the head.
He was taken to hospital in a satisfactory condition and the other was not injured.
Mojapelo said the suspects are believed to be the ones terrorising the areas of Burgersfort, Jane Furse and Groblersdal.
He said the police have opened two cases of attempted murder and malicious damage to property.
