A crime suspect who was robbing city residents of their valuables at gun point was Sunday morning gunned down as two of his accomplices fled the scene with gunshot wounds.

The suspect could not be immediately identified as he had no identification documents with him.

“In the wee hours today morning, detectives received a distress call through our #FichuakwaDCI hotline, that a marauding gang had staged a robbery in Harmony area, where they were attacking innocent residents with reckless abandon.

“The call was actioned to our Dandora based sleuths who responded on time, just as the thugs were attacking a woman who was headed home,” DCI said.

The cornered thugs whose party had just been ruined, opened fire towards the fast advancing officers as they fled the scene.

“But the officers’ response was fierce and precise, leaving the brave suspect fatally wounded,” DCI added.

His cowardly accomplices dived into a sewer channel and swum through the sludge towards Njiru.

Detectives have since launched manhunt for the escapees.
