Seven Suspected Thugs Shot Dead
Seven suspected thugs have been killed in a botched robbery in Isinya, Kajiado County.
The seven were shot dead at around 1.30 am after they defied the police order to stop the vehicle and instead fired at the police.
“Early this morning, detectives drawn from the Special Service Unit operating within Isinya spotted a motor vehicle registration number KCB 583L with suspicious individuals on board. The driver of the vehicle was challenged to stop but he defied and instead the other,” said the police.
An AK 47 rifle loaded with three rounds of ammunition a pocket phone and two AP jackets were recovered from the suspects.
Police say that the suspects are linked to a series of robberies that have been happening in Nairobi, Mlolongo, Kitengela and Isinya.
“The gang had moved to Isinya thinking it is poorly policed where they have been staging attacks,” said Special Unit Service boss Pius Gitari.
The bodies of the seven were moved to the mortuary.
