Police in Nyamira are investigating an incident where an Administration police officer shot his two colleagues before killing himself dead under unclear circumstances.
Julius Mdachi was having a conversation with Nyamira South Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit (CIPU) Commander Nicanor Odhiambo and Sergeant Amani Ali over his reservations with deployment at Governor’s residence when he suddenly opened fire on them.
The officer, armed with AK-47 rifle, shot both officers on the right thigh before shooting himself on the lower chin.
The culprit and Sgt Ali were pronounced dead on arrival at Nyamira Referral Hospital while the CIPU boss was referred to Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital.
Four spent cartridges and AK-47 loaded with 26 rounds of ammunition were recovered from the scene.
