The Zimbabwe police have arrested armed robbers who shot and killed a 10-month-old baby in Macheke.
According to reports, six out of the seven members of a robbery gang were arrested hours after the heinous crime.
The gang had attacked the home of businessman Shephard Haruzivi late in the night.
However, after Haruzivi fired two shots at the gang with his registered gun, the armed robbers returned fire and, in the process, killed a 10-month-old baby named Moreblessing Haruzivi.
The innocent baby was shot in the chest and died from the bullet wound.
His mother, Dephine Makokola suffered a serious injury as she took a bullet to the left lower breast.
After the attack, the gang who robbed the family of US$500 and a Toyota Fortuner vehicle used a South Africa-registered Toyota Fortuner belonging to their first victims to travel 60 kilometres to Macheke.
Unfortunately for them, Detectives used a tracker on the stolen Toyota Fortuner to track down and arrest members of the gang.
Before being arrested, the robbers shot at the police officers but were overpowered.
Two out of the six arrested suspects were taken to Marondera Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during the shootout.
The six have been identified as Trust Sakavengwa, 37, of Chitungwiza, Gift Nhema of Shamva, Clemence Muterengwende, 38, of Seke and brothers Pearson, Machipisa, 29, Panganai Machipisa, 36, and Brian Machipisa, 38, all of Chitungwiza.
They have now been charged with murder, attempted murder and armed robbery.
Meanwhile, the National police spokesman Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said the police have since launched a manhunt for the seventh man, only identified as Dread.
