There was heavy shooting in Nairobi's Eastern Bypass near one motor vehicle garage. The gunman aimed at a Mitsubishi Lancer that had just been parked opposite Energy Petrol Station and fired several shots on it.
The man's intention was not immediately determined. It is however suspected that he was targeting the car's occupant who narrowly escaped death. The gunman who was in another car arrived shortly after the Mitsubishi Lancer parking at the scene of the incident.
Police officers who arrived at the scene discovered that the shot motor vehicle had twenty bullet holes on the driver's door. It's also reported that some bullets exited through the windscreen onto other two vehicles that were parked at the garage for repair.
The officers recovered 34 cartons containing 2040 rounds of ammunition from the said car. The boxes were wrapped in a white sack and hidden in one seat of the vehicle. They also recovered two mobile phones from the vehicle.
The car was towed to Ruai Police Station as the investigation into the incident continues.
