Two National Bank workers were shot near DRC nightclub, while the third person, officer working with the Ministry of Information was killed in one of the town's commercial street.

A fourth person who sustained gunshot wounds was immediately rushed to the Garissa Provincial General hospital.

The two incidents happened simultaneously within a radius of less of the 300 metres.
