XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 

Kenyan policeman shoots dead boss and injures colleagues

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- A police officer shot dead his boss before injuring his two colleagues at southeast Kenya’s Makueni County, police said Thursday.

The suspect is on the run after the Wednesday evening incident, in which he shot dead the local deputy Officer Commanding Station (OCS) inspector and injured two other officers at the Makueni police station.

The suspect’s seniors said he is armed with an AK47 rifle, which he used to commit the crime. It is not clear what prompted the confrontation.

Police said the suspect, identified as Barasa, on Wednesday had been deployed to the report office, where he became uneasy, saying he was going to kill someone.

One of his colleagues overheard him say so and informed other officers at the station. And after the deputy OCS was informed, he and two constables went to the report office for a check-out.

“Upon seeing the officers, Barasa opened fire killing the OCS and injured two other officers,” said a senior officer in the area.

A man hunt was immediately launched on the officer who is still armed and in uniform.
