Two people killed in Garissa shooting

14 August 2014, 12:09

Garissa - Police have launched investigations into the killing of two people by unknown gunmen in Garissa town.

The gunmen are said to have opened fire on members of the public in the town’s Bulhan area, killing one person on the spot, while the other one succumbed to his injuries after being rushed to hospital.

Garissa Deputy County Commissioner Dominic Kyenza said the police had increased patrols in the town as they search for the gunmen who carried out the attack, which occurred Wednesday night, Daily Nation reports.

He also urged members of the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity in the area to ensure that the peaceful co-existence in recent times in the town is maintained.

Garissa has in recent times fared better than most towns in the northern region regarding such attacks, after increased police presence in the bustling town.
