Two gangsters shot dead in shootout with police
Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Tuesday afternoon gunned down two armed gangsters who were terrorizing residents of Lucky Summer in Nairobi.
The two were said to have been in a gang of three that attacked locals near Rehmart Supermarket and robbed them of their valuables.
The detectives who were nearby heard the distress calls and rushed to the scene.
According to the DCI, the gunmen – on sighting the officers – advanced towards them while firing, thereby engaging them in a shootout.
Two of them were killed in the shootout while the third escaped and is presently being sought after.
One pistol with three live rounds and three mobile phones were recovered.
