Five people including an Administration Police Officer died in Naivasha on Sunday in four separate incidents.

The officer attached to Kipkonyo chief’s camp in Moi Ndabi killed himself after shooting his girlfriend three times.

Trouble started after the officer who was allegedly drunk confronted the girlfriend who operates a Mpesa shop and the two had an argument.

According to an eye witness Samuel Kiragu, the officer shot at the woman nineteen times with three of the bullets hitting her on the hips before he fled.

“Thinking he had killed her, the officer retreated to the camp where he shot himself on the head dying on the spot,” he said.

Naivasha Deputy County Commissioner John Opondo confirmed the incident adding that the woman had been admitted in Naivasha sub-county hospital in serious condition.

“The AP officer after shooting the girlfriend went back to the camp and shot himself dead and an inquest file has been opened,” he said.
