The men had been waiting in a salon car to attack a construction site where the owner was to deliver money to pay his workers and escape with it.

Head of Flying Squad Musa Yego said the suspects had been linked to a series other attacks reported in the area.

He added they are investigating to establish if one or more of those killed are police officers.

Witnesses said police arrived in two cars as the one with the four men waited near a construction site. The officers jumped out and opened fire on the car killing the four men inside the car.

The 1 PM killing along General Mathenge Road attracted a huge crowd in the area with many eager to have a glimpse of the scene. The bodies were later moved to the mortuary.
