This gun was confiscated after a shooting.

Steenberg police arrested a 30-year-old man for the possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition on Thursday March 28 in St Christopher Avenue, Lavender Hill.

Officers from the Tactical Response Team were busy with a vehicle check point when they received information at about 5.55pm about a man who had a firearm in his possession.

The officers saw the man shooting at another person and gave chase but he disappeared.

However, another man was arrested and found to be in possession of a .38 special revolver with no serial number and three live rounds of ammunition after he shot at the first suspect.
