Mombasa - Four armed gunmen shot dead a businessman in the coastal city of Mombasa on Friday night, said the police.
Mombasa Country Police Commander Robert Kitur confirmed that Shahid Bhat, owner of a bus company, was killed a few metres away from the Changamwe police station.
"What we have gathered so far is that the businessman was coming from the airport when four armed gunmen in a white private vehicle blocked his way and sprayed the occupants with the bullets, killing Bhat, but his son escaped with slight injuries," Kitur said.
He said the police will launch investigations into the case which comes amid a series of terror attacks in the tourism resort city.
