Man escapes death after thugs shot him

A 38-year-old man escaped death by a whisker in Kinoo, central Kenya, after thugs attacked him on Saturday night of September 25, 2021.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said James Chomba was walking home at around 11:30 pm when he was accosted by two gun-toting thugs.

The thugs ordered him to lie down but Chomba defied the orders, opting to run for dear life. Outfoxed, one of the thugs opened fire and shot him, the bullet head entering the chest through the left side and exiting on the right.

But an unbowed Chomba sprinted to his house faster missing other shots by a whisker.

“As the thugs staged their cowardly escape, the area chief who got wind of the attack immediately called our officers based at Kikuyu Police Station, who rushed to the scene,” said DCI.

The victim, who was bleeding profusely from the gunshot wounds, was rushed to the M.P Shah hospital for treatment.

Luckily, after doctors at the facility conducted various tests, it was established that Chomba was out of danger since the bullet head had not touched any vital internal organs.

The detectives are in hot pursuit of the two suspects after obtaining crucial leads on their whereabouts
