Two gunmen were on Sunday night arrested after a fierce shootout with police at Merti area in Isiolo County.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), detectives patrolling Duma-Yamicha Road spotted two suspicious Toyota Probox vehicles before signalling the occupants to stop.

Instead of stopping the occupants sped off.

A hot pursuit ensued, before two occupants in one of the cars identified as Abdi Fatah Ibrahim and Yusuf Mohamed opened fire at the officers, a move that triggered an exchange of rapid shots in self-defence.
