ZRP officer shoots innocent man 4 times on the chest. The victim, Lodrick Matsweru (26), was visiting a friend, Danidzirai Muzhanduki, at Village 3 Rudway in Chief Bvute’s area.

A police officer from the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Support Unit allegedly shot and killed an innocent man by pumping four bullets into his chest in Mberengwa on Tuesday morning, The Mirror reports.

On a fateful day, Matsweru was sleeping when he heard a knock on the door around four AM. When he opened the door, he was met with a hail of bullets and died instantly.

The police officers were looking for an armed robber but opened fire without asking any questions or verifying the identity of the person who opened the door. Reports indicate that police were looking for either Tichaona Muzhanduki or Doubt Chiponda suspected to have robbed a crew of a fuel tanker of some money.

The cops, some of whose names are in the hands of The Mirror allegedly tried to run away after the shooting but were blocked by angry villagers who had gathered at the scene.

It is further alleged that the robber had US$31 000 on him and the cops may have had an interest in that money. Midlands Police spokesperson Ethel Mukwende said she was on leave when The Mirror called her for a comment.

Her workmate Xolani Dube referred questions to the national Police spokesperson Paul Nyathi who said he was in a meeting when The Mirror called him on Thursday. This comes after a Bulawayo man, Paul Munakopa, was also killed in cold blood by police officers who were driving an unmarked vehicle.
