A man alleged to have shot dead his rival in a fatal love triangle in Garden Estate, Nairobi,  has surrendered himself to the police.

Leonard Kanari surrendered himself at Kasarani police station on Tuesday together with the pistol he is believed to have used to commit the offence.

Mr Kinari  is said to have shot dead Christopher Adangi Muganda after he found him with his girlfriend, Edna Kariuki, when he went to visit her in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

The woman was escorting the deceased from her house at 12:30 am when they met the suspect who shot and killed the victim instantly.

Kasarani OCPD Robinson Mboloi on Tuesday told Nairobi News that the suspect is being detained at the police station and will be arraigned in court for the crime.

“At 10 am Tuesday morning, Leonard Kanari, the suspect who is believed to have shot dead Cristopher Adangi in the wee hours of Saturday morning, surrendered himself together with the pistol that is registered to him and which we believe was the one used to commit the crime.

“We are holding him at Kasarani police station, from there he will be arraigned in court to answer to the crime. However investigations are still going on,” said Mr Mboloi.

According to the police, Mr Kanari, a licensed firearm holder, shot the victim on the stomach.

Ms Edna Kariuki has since recorded a statement with the police.
