Two shot outside Gatundu Law Courts in gangland-style attempted execution

Two people were shot and seriously injured outside Gatundu Law courts, Kiambu County, yesterday morning.

In a brazen attack that left members of the public and law enforcement officers shocked, a motorbike with two pillion passengers pulled over outside the court and the two passengers whipped out pistols.

“Their target were two men who had just left the courtroom, for the mention of a case in which they are accused of stealing farm produce,” says the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). It was around 10am.

The assailants opened fire at the duo, and then escaped using the motorcycle, whose number plate was carefully concealed.
