Police kill gangsters who gunned down 2 officers in Nairobi
Police in Maragua on Saturday killed three gangsters believed to have been behind the killing of two police officers in Kayole, Nairobi and recovered two guns.
Police raided the gangster’s hideout more than 50 kilometers away and heavy gun fight that lasted for about two hours ensued before the thugs were finally overpowered.
The gun battle brought business to a standstill in the area after the heavily armed officers stormed a building in the town with unconfirmed reports indicating that they may have taken some residents hostage in the process.
According to police, the bodies of the two constables; Linus Inima and James Gitahi, were found by officers from Kirima AP Camp after a tip off by a member of the public who reported hearing gun shots in the area at around 4:00am Saturday.
Murang’a county criminal investigating officer Julius Rutere said officers from the flying squad, Recce and CID officers were at the scene.
