During a shootout with patrol cops in Nairobi's Zimmerman estate, a suspected gangster was killed.
The cops were responding to a distress call from a woman who had been ambushed by the deceased thug and his gang as she was walking home at 7 p.m.
When other gang members, armed with crude weapons, realized cops were nearby, they fled while their accomplice engaged the cops in a gun battle.
The cops overpowered the suspected gangster and gunned him down.
The suspect was found with an American colt pistol loaded with two rounds of ammunition and two Samsung phones believed to have been stolen from other victims.
The police have launched a manhunt for the remaining gang members who have escaped.
Even in broad daylight, marauding gangs have terrorized residents of the Zimmerman estate.
The estate has seen an increase in violent crimes, most of which are committed by young men in their early twenties.
