Nairobi - 3 gangsters were shot dead by Police in Nairobi's Githurai Monday night after failing to stop after being flagged down.
The three were stopped by Police whilst driving in a Toyota NZE vehicle but instead of stopping, they opened fire at Police forcing the officers to hit back and kill them.
The NZE had registration number KBT 186K.
" They were asked to stop but they refused and instead opened fire on the officers. There was no real option other than to hit back at them," Nairobi Police Boss Japheth Koome told News24 on phone.
Police recovered a homemade gun, a walkie-talkie and bullets on the suspects.
The bodies were taken to the City Mortuary.
Police have asked members of the public to be wary of such characters.
