Six suspects linked to murder of Chiefs player Luke Fleurs arrested

Six suspects have been arrested in connection with the hijacking and murder of Kaizer Chiefs player Luke Fleurs.

Fleurs, 24, was hijacked and shot dead at a petrol station in Honeydew last Wednesday.

According to police, Fleurs’ car has also been recovered.

Spokesperson Lt-Col Mavela Masondo said the six suspects were traced and arrested in Slovoville, Soweto, in the early hours of Wednesday, while the vehicle, which was already stripped, was recovered on Monday.

β€œIt is reported that the victim, who was driving a red VW Golf 8 GTI, drove into the petrol station in 14th Avenue at the corner of Hendrik Potgieter,” Masondo said.

β€œWhile waiting to be served by the petrol attendant he was confronted by two armed men driving a white BMW 1 Series.Β The suspects pointedΒ a firearm at him and pulled him out of his vehicle, then shot him once in the upper body. One suspect drove off with the victim’s car followed by his accomplice.Β The victim was taken to the nearest medical care centre where he was certified dead on arrival.”

Masondo said police believe the suspects are part of a syndicate hijacking cars in Gauteng and the search for more suspects is continuing.

The arrested suspects are expected to appear in the Roodepoort magistrate’s court on Friday.

“I think we are shocked in disbelief and have a lot of anger at the same time. It was a very sombre day at the Village. We’ve never experienced anything like this , losing a squad player. It’s been a difficult day”

“We gave the players an option not to train today . But they said they want to train and soldier on in the memory of Luke Fleurs. We met at our central point and the Chairman addressed the players before they went on the field”

“Luke had a radiant smile and was loved by all the players . He stayed close to Yusuf Maart. He was also close to Keegan. He was a great professional and never complained or sulked when not picked. He was very close to making his debut. He would have travelled to Chippa”
