Police From Hell Shoots 5, His Wife And Himself Dead In Nairobi's Kabete

Seven Kenyans have been pronounced dead after a police officer from Kabete Police Station opened fire on them randomly before shooting himself. The police opened fire in the early hours of the morning in Nairobi County's Kabete district, before going to his wife's shop (a wine and spirits shop) and telling her to close it down and go home. 


The officer is reported to have shot his wife dead before getting into his car and turning the pistol on himself when they returned home to J Apartments near N Market. An officer stated, "He fired bullets on his wife's neck before going to his car and placing the cock of the gun on his chin and firing."

 

Details about why the officer went on the rampage had not yet been revealed as detectives from the crime unit stepped in to gather evidence and solve the mystery. The bodies of the seven are being transported to the mortuary, according to a traffic officer familiar with the situation.


Neighbors, who were surprised by the encounter, have shunned the officer's antics. They have urged the authorities in charge of police recruitment to conduct mental health tests on fully trained officers before deploying them to serve Kenyans. Kenyans who learned of the occurrence on the internet denounced it and encouraged police personnel to protect residents rather than murder them.
