Police are probing an incident where a security guard was shot in a robbery gone wrong.
The incident took place along Moi Avenue, Nairobi when an armed thug tried to rob a warehouse near Bihi Towers.
The business owner, a licensed gun holder, fought back and shot at the thief. He missed and instead shot the guard in the head.
It is alleged that the thief was after a gold chain.
He died on the spot. His remains have since been moved to City Mortuary for an autopsy exam.
Unfortunately, a passerby was caught in the crossfire. They have been taken to the hospital for treatment.
An officer privy to the goings-on said a suspect has already recorded their statement with the police.
The Friday incident attracted a large crowd as traffic along the busy street built up.
In February, a woman was hit by a stray bullet along Landis Road in Nairobi.
The victim was allegedly accidentally shot by a police officer who opened fire on a robber.
She too died on the spot.
