Chaos erupted in Dandora today morning after a police officer shot dead a deaf boy who was rummaging through garbage in a lorry.
Youths hurled stones at police as they tried to take the body of the 16-year-old boy.
They claimed he was shot in the chest and back at around 7am at the sprawling Dandora dumpsite.
Nairobi County Police Commander, Japhet Koome said the boy was one of the two suspects who had robbed a woman of her purse before escaping into the dumpsite.
He claimed that after the shooting, a gang that is based at the dumpsite took his body and hid it so that the police could not take it.
