Three armed gangsters shot dead in Nairobi, Kenya

Three armed gangsters were gunned down by police Friday morning in Westlands, Nairobi. One pistol, four rounds of ammunition, and a Kenyan national identification card were found at the scene.

Few hours earlier, the trio had robbed a civilian at James Gichuru road and was on the run with the police hot on their tail.

In a white Toyota fielder, they sped off along Waiyaki Way but rammed into an oncoming canter near Westlands round about bringing the trail to an end.

Thereafter, a fierce gun battle ensued near Barclays bank between them on one hand, and police and civilian gun license holders on the other. One such civilian was Harish Rabadia who first came into the limelight in 2013 after saving lives during the Westgate Mall terror attack.

Contrary to Kenyan media reports, the gangsters had not attempted to rob the bank.

Gigiri OCPD Vitalis Otieno said Police were in pursuit of an accomplice who escaped on foot.
