On Tuesday late night, two gangsters were fatally injured leading to death in a shootout along Old Kiambu road, next to Karura dispensary.
One of them is said to be a lady aged between 25 and 30 years.
According to a statement by the DCI, the two gangsters had earlier been flagged down by the detectives but they defied the orders and opened fire.
The sleuths then retaliated leaving the two fatally wounded as one more accomplice fled the scene to the nearby Karura forest.
DCI says they recovered one falcon sport pistol with seven rounds of 9mm calibre, 11 master keys, 150 duplicated keys and two claw bars, a television set, a laptop and a DVD machine.
In a bid to conceal the actual registration number of their vehicle, the number plate’s last letter had been altered to read KCY 482U instead of KCY 482J.
The bodies of the deceased were moved to the city mortuary pending identification.
