Police shoot dead three gangsters in Dandora

Police shot dead three suspects and recovered a homemade pistol in Dandora on Monday night.

Nairobi County commander Japheth Koome said that four suspects had robbed Mr Alfred Oyalo of his mobile phone and cash within Dandora Phase 1.

He alerted the police on patrol near Cool Inn area who rushed to the scene and caught up with the suspects. Three of them were shot dead while the other managed to escape.

Mr Oyalo said that he was from watching football at around 11 p.m when he was confronted by the four men.

“One of them pointed a gun at me then two of them grabbed me and threw me on the ground as they ransacked my pockets,” he said.

The gunman stood a few metres from the scene and would order passersby to lie down as they continued robbing them.

Police recovered the home-made pistol, two rounds of ammunition, two knives and the mobile phone that had been stolen from the victim.

The bodies, which were not identified immediately, were taken to the City mortuary awaiting postmortem.
