A KwaZulu-Natal police officer has been arrested in connection with the murder of three people in Ngabayena, outside Pietermartizburg.

In a statement, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said that they were investigating the deaths, which occurred on Saturday morning.

It is alleged that the officer fired shots that led to the death of the three people.

“The SA Police Service arrested the police officer who is alleged to have caused the death of three people.

“Ipid is gathering more valuable information relating to this incident through its investigation process,” said Ipid spokesperson Ndileka Cola.

The man is expected to appear in the Msinga magistrate's court on Tuesday. Cola said that he was not charged when he was arrested on Saturday as his legal representation was only available for a consultation on Monday.
