According to Nation, the two colleagues were preparing supper when the armed bandits suspected to have come from Laikipia county struct, broke into armoury and made away with three firearms and other assorted rounds of ammunition.
A police report that was seen by sources shows that the bandits fired at the scene and outside a nearby office of a local administrator before they were chased away by police officers from Oldonyiro station.
While confirming the incident, Isiolo County Commissioner Geoffrey Omoding said that one of the KWS was fatally injured and succumbed at Nanyuki Cottage Hospital Saturday morning while the one is currently in stable condition.
