He was a student schools at Mwororo Secondary School in Tana River.

Starehe OCPD Bernard Nyakwaka said that the student died after being shot by the gang that was escaping arrest from a mob.

" He was shot in the chest by a gang that was escaping on foot while being pursued by a mob Sunday night," he said

" The gang had attacked and robbed a cyber cafe and was escaping when an alarm was raised. This prompted a mob to start chasing them and when they sensed danger, they shot at the crowd and Aden was hit," he added.

Nyakwaka said that police were still on the trail of the killers and that members of the public must be calm and allow them do their job well.

" We urge help for information from the public but also patience as we deal with the matter," he stated.
