Suspected gangster runs straight to his death while fleeing from police

Luck ran out for a suspected gangster who attempted to evade arrest only to be gunned down by the police inside an apartment that houses Administration Police officers where he ran into seeking refuge.

The suspect was among a group of youth being pursued by the police in the Friday afternoon incident in Umoja Innercore.

Unfortunately for him, the only gate in the estate that was open was one that houses Administration Police officers.

Witnesses said the youth was the only one shot as his accomplices managed to escape.

No weapon was found on him after the shooting.

Meanwhile, in Kayole, three youths, who are suspected to be behind a spate of robberies in the area, were shot dead by the police on Friday.

Police recovered a homemade gun from one of the slain suspects.

The incident brought to five the number of those gunned down by the police on Friday, after another suspect was also shot dead on Jericho.
