A motorist whose car was sprayed with bullets in Juja, Kiambu County, on Tuesday evening has been confirmed dead.
Police say that the man identified as Daniel Guchoma died while receiving treatment to gun shot wounds he sustained.
The victim was rushed to Thika Level 5 Hospital in an unstable condition after the three armed men sprayed his Subaru Forester with bullets.
The incident happened at around 4 pm just when the victim, who was alone in the car, was rerouting to Kenyatta Road, his area of residence, from the Thika Superhighway.
Reportedly, the three-man gang was trailing the motorist on a motorcycle.
“The attackers sped off after surmising that they had killed their target,” said Richard Mwaura, a Directorate of Criminal Investigations Officer from Juja.
Guchoma breathed his last while receiving treatment and his body has since been moved to General Kago Funeral Home in Thika.
An autopsy is yet to be conducted.
