Two people were on Friday afternoon, July 30 shot dead under unclear circumstances in Kathome area on the Machakos-Nairobi Highway.
It is reported that three people on-board a Honda Fit vehicle were cornered by their killers shortly after departing the Kyumbi Shopping Centre.
Machakos County Commissioner John Ondego, confirming the incident, revealed that one of the victims was a police officer based in Mwala sub-County.
According to Ondego, the trio was seemingly on their killers’ radar for some time. They blocked their car upon reaching the scene of the crime.
The driver and the passenger on the front seat died on the spot as the unknown persons sprayed bullets on their vehicle, while the survivor escaped unhurt.
Bodies of the dead were taken to Machakos Level 5 Hospital mortuary while the wreckage has been towed to Machakos Police Station.
Investigations have commenced to unearth the killers as well as their motives.
