Police in Mtwapa, Kilifi County are holding a civilian firearm holder for attempting to shoot his wife's boyfriend.
According to DCI, the man whose name was not immediately identified on Saturday afternoon trailed his wife from their home in Mtwapa to Tamaduni Gardens in Kilifi town, where he busted her with the 29-year-old man having a good time in the car.
"He immediately reached for his czeska pistol and discharged one round in the air, ostensibly to scare and get hold of the young man who jumped out of the car and fled for dear life.
"The suspect tried to stop the fleeing man who sprinted faster than a cheetah, in vain," DCI said in a statement.
After the incident, the man surrendered to police station where he was arrested and his firearm confiscated.
"Dejected, the suspect who unjustifiably used his firearm posing danger to other members of the public, presented himself at Kilifi police station where he is currently being processed for arraignment," DCI said.
