The long arm of the law caught up with 4 suspected criminals on Tuesday morning along Magadi Road. The five were shot dead by Flying Squad officers who were on their trail for about three hours after members of the public tipped them off.

Two of them were allegedly selling guns to the others when they were cornered and shot in the 11am incident, said Flying Squad boss Said Mohammed.

According to eyewitness reports, two of the thugs met their death at the Catholic University of East Africa area while the others were gunned down at Mukoma Road area.

Here are photos that have since gone viral on the interwebs
