They could also be thugs who saw an opportunity after spotting then Toyota Prado on the roadside and thought it is money,” said an officer aware of the probe. Deputy inspector general of police Joel Kitili said they were yet to know the motive of the shooting. “The officer is in hospital and we are pursuing the attackers. We will be able to tell the motive after getting them,” he said. Senior police officers rushed to the scene and interrogated attendants at the nursery as part of the probe into the shooting.
