Thug shot dead in Nairobi, two others escape

A robbery with violence suspect was shot dead in Nairobi' Kawangware estate, as police intensify a crackdown on criminals and criminal gangs in the city.

The suspect, who was part of a miscreant gang that was robbing pedestrians of their valuables, had just accosted a man who was headed home.

It is the man’s screams of despair that attracted the cops who were on patrol.

As the officers rushed to the aid of the victim, the thugs opened fire prompting them to dash down for their safety.

“What followed was a deafening hail of fire as the officers gave the thugs a taste of their own medicine, fatally wounding one of them as his accomplices scampered for dear life with gunshot injuries,” said the police.

A firearm loaded with 3 rounds of 9mm calibre was recovered from the fallen thug.

Meanwhile, a manhunt for the two remaining miscreants is currently ongoing.
