Police gunned down three suspected armed gangsters who had attempted to rob an officer’s wife in Kayole on Tuesday morning.

Kayole Sub County Police Commander Mr Wilson Kosgey said cops pounced on the gang of five after their colleague’s wife made a distress call.

“She had just left her house for work when she made a distress call and we moved in to save her. We managed to rescue her and recovered 10 mobile phones, a homemade pistol and two knives from the robbers. However, two disappeared but we are looking for them,” said the commander.

According to police, the gang has been terrorising Kayole residents by snatching women’s phones, committing burglaries and vandalizing property.

“There has been an outcry over the suspects’ activities in Kayole. It was only a matter of time before we nabbed them because they have been our radar for a while,” said Mr Kosgey.

The bodies of the deceased were taken to the city mortuary as investigations continue.
