Crime scene

Gunmen on Tuesday morning opened fire at Technical University of Mombasa students, killing two female staffers and injuring several students.

They are said to have ambushed cars carrying the students into the institution.

The driver of the car and two security officers were also injured in the morning incident.


Police officers are already at the scene of crime and are on the look out for the unidentified gunman who is allegedly part of the Al-Shabaab militant group.

“A bus carrying students of TUM (the Technical University of Mombasa) was ferrying them from their hostels to the campus in Ukunda for classes and was being escorted by a van that had some staff of the college and two escort police officers,” a policeman told Reuters.

“Armed men numbering about 10 emerged from the bushes and started firing at the van in front. As a result two ladies who are staff of TUM were killed in the van. The driver of the van and two police officers were injured,” he continued.
