Police have identified the suspect seen shooting a shopper during a robbery incident captured on cctv in Nairobi’s Kasarani area.

According to police, the shooter is an ex-convict who just recently concluded his term at the Kamiti Maximum Prison.

The second suspect has also been identified but their names remain withheld.

Two people including a co-owner of the shop and shopper were shot and injured during the fateful night.

Ulbanus Mutua, who co-owns the shop together with Daniel Mutisia, and was on duty on that fateful night, was shot twice on the shoulder.

Mutisia explains that Richard Muema, the man who is seen being shot almost 7 times, was mutua’s friend and when he saw him get shot he rose from the ground perhaps to come to his rescue.

The two are currently at the Kenyatta National Hospital with Muema in the intensive care unit, while Mutua is reported to be in a stable condition.
