A third suspect, linked to the murder of Nathaniel Julies (16), has been arrested. The suspect is a detective from the Eldorado Park police station.
He faces charges of defeating the ends of justice and possession of prohibited ammunition.
The teenager, who had down syndrome, was shot dead in Eldorado Park in Johannesburg last week.
Two police officers have already been taken into custody in connection with the shooting, and have been remanded in custody.
The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) says it will oppose bail for all three suspects.
The suspect is expected to appear before the Protea Magistrates Court on Thursday.
