Nairobi – Considered as one of Nairobi’s prettiest gangsters, a female crime ring member was shot dead by police in Kayole after gun drama ensued on Tuesday afternoon.
It is claimed that she was being accompanied by three other males who appeared to be robbing Kayole residents in public.
Police were alerted by members of the public about the gang’s whereabouts and activities before they confronted them, challenging them to surrender. Instead, the gang shot at the police, who had no choice but to return fire, thereby killing two suspects as the other ran away.
A pistol was recovered at the crime scene, carrying six rounds of 9mm bullets and the two bodies were transported to City Mortuary, where they await identification and postmortem. The pistol’s serial number was not visible but is still being investigated.
It is said that the mysterious gang was hard to track and that police were only alerted through a Whatsapp group, from which they managed to call for reinforcement before approaching the deadly gang.
According to Kayole OCPD Joseph Gichangi, police were still looking for the other two that escaped and that the injured woman was wife to a known suspect, who was still at large.
It is also said that the woman was identified by a social media user, covert, as the wife of a infamous robber in Kayole.
