Three men shot dead in Homa Bay

Three middle-aged men were Thursday shot dead by unknown assailants at Kogwe Junction in Homa Bay County.

The deceased were riding on a motorbike when the attackers, who were trailing them from Rongo town in a black saloon car opened fire, killing them on the spot on Rongo-Homa Bay highway.

Confirming the incident, Homa Bay County Police Commander Esther Seroney said the attackers fled immediately after the incident.

“Our preliminary investigations reveal that the assailants who were traveling in a black saloon car were pursuing the deceased persons,” Seroney told Citizen Digital.

She further said that the deceased persons could not be immediately established as they were not carrying identification documents at the time of the attack.

Their bodies were taken to Homa Bay County Hospital mortuary while the motorbike was towed to  Homa Bay Police Station.
