A police officer attached to Kabete Police Station on the night of Monday, December 6, 2021, shot dead six people before turning the gun to himself.
According to reports, the officer opened fire indiscriminately at the Kabete area. He then proceeded to his wife’s shop and asked her to close down, and they went home together.
The officer is said to have also shot and killed her when they got to their home at J Apartments near N Market, before heading to his car where he turned the gun on himself.
A police officer privy to the matter told a local daily that the bodies of the seven people are being moved to the morgue.
“He inflicted injuries on the wife’s neck before he went to his car before he put the cock of the gun before his chin and fired,” the officer was quoted as saying.
It was, however, unclear at the time of publishing as to why the officer committed the act.
