Port Elizabeth police on Friday released an indentikit of a person of interest in the fatal shooting of a local policeman.

On Tuesday, the 35-year-old police officer, Constable Bonga Ngcingwana, was killed while on duty in New Brighton.

"For the past 48 hours police in both policing clusters in Nelson Mandela Bay have been working round the clock with task teams comprising senior and experienced detectives to investigate and identify the culprits involved," said police spokesperson, Capt Andre Beetge.

"Thus far, police are looking for a silver Toyota Etios in which the four suspects were traveling that were responsible for the death of the police member. The vehicle might have four young men (twenties to thirties) driving around in the bay area."

An identikit was also compiled of a person of interest to this investigation.

"This person is a young male with age between 25 to 30 years," he added.

"Any person that sees a suspicious silver Toyta Etios with suspicious occupants, or that could assist in the identification of the person of interest in the photo, can contact the following police investigators: Lt Colonel Mayi at 082 697 5914, or Lt Colonel Smidt at 082 441 8121, or Warrant Officer Twani 071 481 3193 or Crime Stop 08600 10111."
