Police said the slain suspect was in gang of four who were trailing a businessman who was to withdraw money from the bank.

Ikoa said the shot suspect is a well known thug.

“I want to assure the public that we are on the trail of the suspects who escaped. They are suspected to be behind the spate of recent crime here in Gikomba,” Ikao said.

The police boss added that adequate security measures have been put in place to deal with crime and that criminal elements will be dealt with firmly.
