Senior police lost magazine
Earlier on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, morning, a senior police officer lost the 15 rounds of ammunition magazine and sustained injuries following a bar brawl over a Ksh1200 unpaid bill along Mirema Drive in Kasarani on Tuesday morning.
Inspector Fredrick Mzungu attached to Jogoo police station and Inspector Kelvin Mwangi of Kileleshwa police station had gone to Paris Lounge and Grill on Monday evening while accompanied by four other members of the public for some refreshment.
At around 4 am, a disagreement over a bill ensued, leading to a fight between the officers and the club’s security personnel.
As a result, Inspector Mzungu withdrew his Cesca pistol loaded with 9 rounds of ammunition.
"In defence, the security personnel disarmed the officer and in the process a magazine loaded with 9 rounds of ammunition got lost,” a report seen by K24 Digital reads.
The cop was disarmed by security officers and it was in that process that he lost the loaded Magazine.
The six started fighting which made Mzungu withdraw his Cesca pistol with the intention to shoot.
“During the scuffle, the said officer sustained head injuries. The pistol has been recovered and kept at the Kasarani police station armoury for safe custody. The search for the lost magazine is in progress,” the police report adds.
Police officers from Kasarani Police Station recovered the pistol and placed it in safe Custody at their Armoury as the search for the lost Magazine proceeds.
