Nairobi - Three suspected thugs have been shot dead after they attempted to rob a petrol station in Ruiru in the outskirts of Nairobi.
The three robbers, two men and a woman, were shot dead Friday morning by police after they robbed the Gulf Petrol Station in Ruiru.
The thugs engaged police in a shoot-out soon after an alarm was raised that they had stolen gas cylinders from the petrol station.
" They came in with a gun and forced the petrol station attendants to lie down before taking off with the cylinders," a witness who watched in disbelief from a nearby shop told News24.
Police also recovered a stolen car, gas cylinders, and a pistol from the thugs.
