BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,19TH JAN,2020-Three people have been shot dead by Officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations who were involved in a fiery shoot-out with suspected robbers along Landhies Road in Nairobi.

According to a post shared on DCI’s official Twitter page on Sunday, a tip-off from members of the public helped the police to zero on the group of suspects who were allegedly heading to commit a crime.

“We managed to intercept them along Landhies Road where they were challenged to surrender but instead shot at our officers,” the DCI posted on Twitter.

Three of the suspects were gunned down and succumbed to the bullet wounds while one of them managed to slither through the melee and disappeared into Muthurwa estate, with the officers in hot pursuit.
