Sunday, June 30, 2019- A fifth year Kenyatta University student was shot dead in his girlfriend’s house by unknown assailants.
The deceased, identified as Felix Otieno, was in his girlfriend’s house in Kahawa Wendani with a friend when two gunmen stormed the house, shooting him in the lower abdomen and was pronounced dead on arrival at a city clinic where he was rushed.
According to police report, the gunmen stormed the house at around 11 PM and asked for the whereabouts of another person before a confrontation ensued in which two shots were fired from a pistol.
Ruiru Police boss James Ngetich confirmed the incident, stating that investigations have been launched into the Friday night incident.
“There are many issues coming up but we are hoping to unravel the reasons. We need to know who the killers are, if they were robbers and why they picked on the student (Otieno)," Ngetich said.
Detectives suspect it could be a case of a deal gone sour or a love triangle.
The girlfriend who was not in the house at the time of the shooting is yet to be traced.
