Chauke said he then went to the Eldorado Park police station’s community service centre (CSC), where Ndyalvane and Whiteboy also reported. He said Whiteboy was crying.
“I conducted the interview with Ndyalvane as to what happened,” he said.
Chauke said Ndyalvane explained that he received a tip-off about a truck in Eldorado Park where stolen property was kept.
“Upon responding, two coloured men started shooting at them. As a result, he said Const Whiteboy retaliated with a shotgun with rubber bullets,” Chauke testified.
He said Ndyalvane told him the people shooting at them were not shot, but Julies was shot accidentally, allegedly by the gang members.
“Ndyalvane said he took the victim and put him in the van and drove to [Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital to] get assistance. He was declared dead by a doctor upon arrival,” Chauke said.
While at the police station’s CSC, Chauke said he received a call from Netshiongolo, who was at the scene where Julies was shot.
Chauke asked him what he had found.
“He said he had an exhibit. He gave me two live rounds of 9mm [ammunition]. He said he found [the rounds] next to the truck,” Chauke said.
Chauke said he left Netshiongolo at the scene.
