The head of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations at Embakasi in Nairobi was on Thursday arrested after allegedly shooting and killing a night guard in Kayole.

Simon Mwongela, who is attached to Embakasi Police Station, is said to have shot dead the security guard after an altercation outside a club and lodging in Masimba area.

The Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) officer, witnesses said, arrived at the joint at around 4am and demanded the guard to open the gate and allow him to have a rest at the lodging.

He had apparently been on a duty overnight.
