A security guard working at Okalindi number 1 near Katutura’s single quarters allegedly shot and injured a 17 year-old boy who is affiliated with a notorious gang that calls itself Boko Haram in Katutura.

The incident took place in the evening on Saturday.

The confusing police report claimed that the boy, who is well-known in the area, tried to rob someone who won money while gambling when the security guards were called to intervene.

Upon confrontation, the teenager allegedly charged at the security guards with a knife, who fired warning shots in the air.

When the boy persisted in his assault, a 27 year-old security guard shot him in the right leg.

He is currently receiving treatment at the Katutura State Hospital where his condition has been described as stable.

The guard has not been arrested although the firearm has been confiscated. Police investigations into the matter are continuing. 

In another incident, a female security guard was overpowered during a robbery at Khomas High School in Windhoek on Saturday.

The five suspects allegedly held the woman at gun point and proceeded to rob the school of cell phones confiscated from learners, a flat screen television, five printers, several computers and laptops as well as N$7 600 in cash.

Although no arrests or recoveries have been made yet, the police opened a robbery with aggravating circumstances case.

The school’s windows, office doors and alarm systems were damaged in the robbery.

Police investigation continue.
