Nairobi - A guard was shot dead and a passer-by wounded after thugs raided a shop along Nairobi's CBD in a botched robbery.
The incident took place along the City's Ronald Ngala street Wednesday afternoon after the thugs tried to gain entry into a shop but on realizing they had a hard task, tried to force their way in.
The guard then raised alarm and in the ensuing escape, the thugs shot him, killing him instantly.
They then proceeded to escape on foot.
A passer-by was injured on the thigh after being shot too by the thugs.
The incident took place just after 2 PM in the afternoon.
" The loss of life cannot be tolerated and we ask Police to step up their efforts to rid the city of these elements," a witness told News24.
Police arrived later on to pick up the body of the deceased.
