A man in his 20s this morning snatched a pistol from a traffic police officer at the Kisumu Bus Park and started shooting indiscriminately.
Two people were reportedly shot dead before the berserk man was cornered by members of the public at Fanana area and killed.
The traffic police officer whose gun was snatched was the first victim after he was shot in the stomach. He was rushed to Aga Khan Hospital.
He was shot in the stomach. Another victim, a woman, was shot on the thigh. “Bullets were flying everywhere as people run for cover,” said James Odhiambo, a tout at the stage. “But we are asking why the police officer’s gun was cocked, ready to fire.”
The man was nabbed by the mob while trying to escape through one of the restaurants that dot the precincts of the bus park. He is said to have been wearing gloves.
