In a tweet, the DCI said the gang were trailed by a team of SSU detectives tasked with the “No Guns for Gangs” endeavour.

The officers, acting on intelligence, intercepted the gang’s vehicle Toyota Sienta Reg. No KCH 366 and ordered them to surrender.

“Acting on intelligence, the team which has been pursuing an armed criminal gang operating in Nairobi and its environs intercepted a Toyota Sienta Reg. No KCH 366F along Kangundo Road occupied by four members of the gang,” the DCI tweeted.

The four defied the orders prompting the officers to open fire.

Another bullet, unfortunately hit a civilian’s motor vehicle.

Two Pistols -a Tokarev, a mini Ceska plus 13 bullets have since been recovered.
