Body of gunman who was killed in Kisumu shooting frenzy yet to be claimed
The body of a gunman who was involved in the Kisumu shooting frenzy last Friday has not been claimed and neither has his identity been established.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), nobody has come forward to claim his body or even identify him as a relative, further complicating the investigations.
“Preliminary forensic investigations indicate that the assailant’s details cannot be traced in respective government records. The three identity cards that were found in his possession belong to other individuals who have since been identified,” the DCI said.
During the incident last Friday, the man is said to have snatched a firearm from a traffic police officer and shot at civilians indiscriminately, killing two people and injuring several others.
“DCI detectives from the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau alongside their Anti Terror counterparts have reasons to believe that the assailant was not just the ordinary criminal, but had prior to the attack received training in tactical maneuvers and weapon handling
Members of the public have been urged to assess the published images that were captured during the shootout and should anyone have information that may lead to his identification, they are to call the police on toll free line 0800 722 203.
