Gauteng traffic cop shot while trying to pull over driver who skipped traffic red light

A Gauteng traffic cop was shot twice on Friday morning while attempting to pull over a motorist who skipped a red light in Alberton.

On Friday, a Gauteng traffic officer was gunned down in Alberton while he was trying to pull over the driver of a vehicle which passed over when the traffic light was on red.
