In an incident that occured today on the Tuesday of May 18th, five suspected thugs were gunned down in Kakamega County by the Special Service Unit wing of the Kenya police which deals with crime prevention.

The incident occured near the Makhokho trading center along the Kakamega-Kisumu highway and it's reported that the suspected robbers had engaged the police in a shootout prior to meeting their deaths.

Upon being gunned down, the suspected robbers were found to be carrying various items that they have probably been using in running their criminal activities.

The white Toyota Allion car of registration number KCK 073M that's seen in the first photo above might've been the means they were using to escape the police hunt or chase or they were using it to run their business. Watch a video depicting the incident in the link below.
