Police say a Mwea G.K Prison warder has killed a police officer attached to Kirinyaga East DCC on Sunday evening after the warder was found in the house of a female colleague who is the former wife of the police officer.
The tragedy, which started as a quarrel, escalated into a fight after the shooting happened.
According to a police report seen by Standard Digital, the police officer, Kering Kipkoskei, had visited his girlfriend Sergent Esther Muthoni Mwangi's home.
Muthoni’s ex-husband entered the house around the same time and immediately confronted Kipkosgei demanding to know what he was doing there.
“Bonface Mithamo Ngarariga started beating Kering Kipkosgei and removed his shirt. Sergeant Esther Muthoni Mwangi, the house owner, got hold of Boniface Mithamo and escorted him outside the house,” read the police report.
At that moment, the reports says, Kipkosgei moved to the kitchen and later shot Mithamo in the neck. He then frantically ran outside and turned the gun on himself.
Mithamo had come to check up on his children.
The two officers were rushed to Karira Mission Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
Four spent cartridges and one bullet was recovered at the crime scene as the bodies await post-mortem at Karira Mission Hospital.
