Seven suspected thugs were Tuesday shot dead by police at Rukanga along Sagana-Makutano road in Kirinyaga County.
The seven had been trailed from Nairobi when they got cornered at about 1pm.
Flying Squad officers set up a road block at Rukanga and when the suspects realized they had been cornered, they opened fire. In retaliation, the officers felled all the seven who were aboard a saloon car.
“We thank God they were detected in broad daylight as they were on a robbery mission,” said Samuel Saurey, OCPD Mwea West Sub-County. They are suspected to be behind the killing of two police officers in Githunguri
