Detectives in Kenya, last night gunned down a man believed to be part of a notorious gang that has been terrorising Nairobi residents, seizing a pistol and three bullets.
According to Police sources, detectives bumped into three men while on patrol in KCC area within Kariobangi South Post and challenged them to identify themselves.
“ One pretended to be fishing out his Identity Card from his pocket. Instead, he drew out his gun and opened fire. Luckily, none of the bullets caught any of the officers.
“ Officers who had taken strategic positions returned fire, fatally injuring the suspect. The other two men escaped in the darkness, escaping an appointment with their maker by a whisker, ” the source said.
A Glock pistol and three live ammunitions were recovered from the dead gangster.
It was later learnt that the deceased suspect operates under a cover up name, ‘Kibe’, as he and his gang have been giving city residents sleepless nights.
“ Hunt for the two accomplices who fled has been intensified. The seized firearm and bullets forwarded to ballistic experts at the Department of Criminal Investigation (DCI), headquarters for analysis, while the body lies at a city morgue awaiting identification, ” the source said.
