A criminal who was robbing city residents at gunpoint was this morning gunned down.
His two accomplices fled the scene with gunshot wounds.
The police said that the suspect was felled by “our agents’ fire.
He could not be immediately identified as he had no identification documents with him.
“In the wee hours today morning, detectives received a distress call through our #FichuakwaDCI hotline, that a marauding gang had staged a robbery in the Harmony area, where they were attacking innocent residents with reckless abandon,” the police said.
The call was actioned to our Dandora based sleuths who responded on time, just as the thugs were attacking a woman who was headed home.
The cornered thugs whose party had just been ruined, opened fire towards the fast advancing officers as they fled the scene. But the officers’ response was fierce and precise, leaving the brave suspect fatally wounded.
His cowardly accomplices, who will live to tell the story of how their master lost his life after challenging law enforcement agents to a duel, dived into a sewer channel and swum through the sludge towards Njiru.
Detectives are hot on their trail.
Meanwhile, the woman who had been attacked by the thugs was escorted home by the officers. Luckily, she did not suffer any injuries.
