Another dramatic Mirema Drive shootout by gunmen who shot Kevin Otieno 36 times
Gunmen who on Friday shot a man identified as Kevin Otieno 36 times in Mihang’o- Utawala in broad daylight as members of the public watched, had on the night of Thursday shot dead two people along Mirema Drive in Kasarani.
One of the men who was shot dead on Thursday had been identified as Mr David Ochieng Odera, 34 and the other man is yet to be identified.
When the Nairobi News visited the scene where Mr Ochieng was shot dead, locals said that the two men arrived driving a white Toyota Belta and parked it opposite Jifiche Bar.
One of the men then proceeded to a nearby butchery and left the other one making a phone call while inside the white motor vehicle.
Moments later a Probox car which was being driven by a woman approached the white car and parked beside the Toyota Belta.
“The two men then alighted and confronted the man who was busy making a call and demanded that they be given what they called mzigo. They told him that they will not let him eat alone,” a man who witnessed what transpired said.
It is then that the man who was at the butchery noticed the commotion, rushed to his motor vehicle, picked up a gun and shot at the two men as he tried to flee the scene.
However, he missed the target and as he was trying to flee the scene, the two men fired several bullets at the car killing the driver on the spot.
The other man was handcuffed and had been asked to lie on the ground.
The two men went ahead and hailed several bullets on him as he pleaded for forgiveness.
Nairobi News spoke to several locals who said that the two men appeared to be new in the area and had requested that they are shown the direction towards Jifiche Bar.
“They did not know where Jifiche Bar was and they even asked for direction from us, we showed them where it is located and they left,” said a man who runs a business along Mirema Drive.
After the dramatic shoot-out, the two men then made calls and police officers arrived at the scene just moments after they had left.
At the scene, four spent cartridges were found and picked by the police officers and sleuths attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Kasarani police station.
