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.
