Suspected Thug Shot Dead after Accosting Woman in Kasarani –


A suspected thug was on Tuesday morning gunned down after a fierce shoot-out with police in Kasarani area, Nairobi.

The unidentified man had reportedly accosted a pedestrian who was on her way to work at Season’s Bus Stop when police on patrol flagged him.

The robber, police said, attempted to flee the scene using a getaway motorbike but not for long.

“When the rider heard the rumbling sound of an approaching Police land cruiser chasing after them at breakneck speed, panic engulfed him & the motorcycle began wobbling on the road,” DCI said in a statement.

The armed pillion passenger fell off the motorcycle, landing on the tarmac with a thud.

In an attempt to evade arrest, the suspect fired at the Police vehicle that had screeched to halt.

The men in uniform believe that the gangsters are linked to a shooting incident that occurred last night at the Githurai roundabout, where a man was shot on the right arm by gun-toting criminals on a motorbike.

The authorities revealed that the gang had snatched a handbag from a woman who was walking home and opened fire on concerned members of the public, who were responding to her distress call.
