The men accosted the deceased at the shop that is only a few metres from the police station.
According to K24 Digital, the suspects confronted the departed inside the shop and shortly after locked the doors to the shop. There was noise coming from the shop, residents say.

Police officers arrived at the scene of incident as the crowd that was already forming tried to assault the suspects who have since been taken to Kitengela Police Station.

They also blamed the police for letting the vice flourish.
Investigations into the matter have started, Isinya Sub-County police boss, Kinyua Mugambi said.
