Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have launched a manhunt for two young men who shot and injured a customer after an attempted robbery in Kasarani area, Nairobi.

A CCTV footage seen by Kahawa Tungu dated November 5, 2019, revealed details of the bizarre incident.

The victim identified as Richard Muema had gone to the shop to purchase some goods at around 10 pm when the two men stormed the shop and one of them brandished a gun forcing the customer to lie down.

The robbers then shifted the focus to the shopkeeper who out of fear started screaming for help.

Seeing that he might be killed after the robbery, Muema got on his feet and attempted to wrestle one of the men holding a pistol.
