Manhunt launched for police officer who shot dead two colleagues

Police in Baringo County are looking for a rogue Administration Police officer who on Wednesday night shot dead two of his colleagues and left another one in critical condition.

While confirming the incident which happened at Kasiela Camp, AP Commander in Baringo, Robinson Ndhiwa, said the circumstances surrounding the incident are still unclear.

The injured police officer was rushed to Marigat sub county hospital for treatment after both his legs were broken by bullets.

The said officer who attacked his colleagues fled the scene with his gun and his whereabouts are still unknown.


This is not the first time for a police officer to turn on their colleagues. In February 2017, two police officers died while another was injured after they fought among themselves in a Nairobi estate.

During the fight, one of the officers attached to the Embakasi Police Station shot dead his colleague then turned the gun on himself.

The other officer survived with bullet injuries.

The same month, a police officer attached to the Nairobi home of the Speaker of National Assembly Justine Muturi was shot dead by his colleague following an argument.
