A 35 year-old man accused of shooting dead a colleague in a love triangle has surrendered to the police in Nairobi.

Leonard Kanari presented himself to Kasarani police station where he is currently recording a statement.

He has also surrendered his gun to the police after three days in hiding after he allegedly shot and killed Christopher Adangi who is alleged to have been in Kanari’s Garden estate house last Friday.

Nairobi CID boss Ireri Kamwende said police are questioning Kanari. Adangi was an employee at a Credit Reference Bureau in Nairobi.

The woman at the centre of the dispute and who reported the incident at the Kasarani police station has been identified as Ednah Kariuki.

Last Friday, police said the assailant who is a licensed firearm holder, visited his girlfriend’s apartment unannounced at around midnight on Thursday and found his lover entertaining another man.

The scorned man drew his pistol and shot the other man before driving off.  Adangi was confirmed dead at a Nairobi clinic where he was rushed with bullet wounds in his stomach.

Police are investigating the incident.
