Police Officer Goes Barsek, Shoots Dead His Colleague and Escapes With a Loaded Rifle

Police based in Laikipia County are investigating a murder at the Miteta General Service Unit (GSU) camp where an officer reportedly shot his colleague dead after an argument.

According to Laikipia County Police Commander, John Nyoike, the suspect openly shot his colleague on the head after a heated debate over a dispute yet to be unravelled by the detectives.

Reports indicate that the officer later picked his bag and engaged his colleagues in a heavy exchange before escaping.

Police boss Nyoike intimated that the officer further started shooting indiscriminately at the camp as he fled towards the Laikipia Nature Conservancy.

Officers have since been dispatched to the area to pursue, track and capture him.

The body of the victim was taken to Nyahururu County Referral Hospital mortuary awaiting post mortem. 

This incident comes at a time when so many officers have been involved in similar incidents showing the bad state of many in the service.

However, Laikipia has been a talk of the town with many people and police officers losing their lives during some deadly raids.

Bandits have been wreaking havoc in the area with a contingent of cops sent to the area to quell the situation.
