28 April 2014, 12:48 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Three suspected thugs were shot dead over the weekend by police officers in Nyeri. 

The three were in a motor vehicle along Nyeri-Nyahururu road when they were ordered by police to stop but defied the order.

Area police boss, Adiel Nyange reported that the suspects had robbed an Mpesa shop in Karatina town.

“Police officers intercepted three suspects in a motor vehicle who had earlier committed a robbery in Karatina. These suspects defied an order by the officers to stop and instead opened fire to the officers resulting into exchange of fire,” said Nyange.

The officers retaliated killing the three on the spot while one escaped with gunshot wounds.

Police recovered an AK 47 rifle and three rounds of ammunition from the suspects.

Among the dead was a woman and police say they had trailed them from Mweiga town and on reaching Embassy area they were challenged to stop but defied the order and started firing at the police.

The police boss appealed to local residents to provide information on the injured suspect.
