A lethal rifle recovered from a 4-man gang that has been terrorizing Nakuru residents after police ambushed them, leading to a gun battle (PHOTOs).

Monday, April 15, 2024 - Following a spate of violent robberies within Nakuru North Sub-County where in every incident a rifle was used, a team comprising officers from DCI HQS, DCI Nakuru North, and OCS Lanet on a mission to track down the perpetrators recovered the LIAI rifle that was being used after a fatal shootout with an armed gang.

Acting on intelligence that an armed gang was sighted at Nakuru's Umoja Estate, the team conducted a sting operation in the area where the four-man gang was ambushed and ordered to surrender.

But in defiance, they opened frenzied fire on the officers triggering a retaliation in self-defense.

Two gang members were shot dead while two others managed to escape with suspected gunshot wounds.

 Their pursuit is underway.

From the felled robbers, a LIAI rifle loaded with four rounds of ammunition, a panga, dagger, hammer, a pair of pliers, balaclavas, and spent cartridges were recovered.

The scene has since been processed by the Crime Scene Investigators and the bodies moved to Nakuru Annex Morgue awaiting identification.
