Embakasi DCIO has been arrested after allegedly shooting dead a security guard in Kayole, Nairobi county.
Simon Mutia Mwongela allegedly killed the guard at a lodging in Masimba area at 4am.
The two were involved in an altercation after the DCI officer demanded that the guard opens the gates of a lodging so that he accesses a room to sleep.
Witnesses said Mwongela had reportedly finished his night shift and sought for a place to sleep. The guard told him its was too late for him to open the gates, prompting the shooting. He allegedly fired a single bullet, which tore through the security guard’s chest, killing him instantly.
Nairobi County deputy DCI boss Moses Ndindi visited the scene and ordered for the arrest of Mwongela. He was detained as investigations into the incident continue.
The deceased’s body was taken to City mortuary, awaiting postmortem.
