Police on Saturday night shot dead two suspected thugs  in Kayole who were attacking and robbing residents.

A homemade gun was recovered from the suspects.

Officers said their three accomplices escaped.

In Kiambu, a bodyguard attached to Kiambu Deputy Governor James Karanja Nyoro was on Saturday evening shot and injured in a shootout that also left his father dead.

John Mungai Mburu, a General Service Unit (GSU) officer, was accosted by two armed robbers who wanted to rob him of his gun at the gate of his home at Muguga village in Kabete.

COMMOTION

According to Kabete OCPD Joseph Ongaya, the bodyguard’s wife and his father were in the house at around 10pm when they heard a commotion at the gate before they came out to see what was happening.

“When the old man and the daughter-in-law left the house, they found the officer wrestling with two people.

At that time, the officer, who is now admitted in hospital, was shot and when the father tried to intervene he was shot in the left side of the chest before the thugs shot the daughter-in-law, said the OCPD.

The bodyguard’s father succumbed to the gunshot wounds, while his son and the wife are recuperating at Aga Khan Hospital where they were transferred after receiving emergency treatment at PCEA Kikuyu Hospital.

Police have since launched a manhunt for the thugs who fled after the incident.
