The DCI on Tuesday launched a manhunt for two gangsters who were seen shooting a bystander in Eastleigh.
In the CCTV footage shared on social media, there seems to be commotion outside a shop in Eastleigh’s 14th street before onlookers scamper for safety.
It is at this point that a motorbike carrying two men speeds in their direction and in the ensuing melee, a man falls to the ground.
The video was shared by a netizen who asked police to investigate the matter and the DCI assured that they had already started tracking the gangsters.
“Robbers shot someone in a botched robbery in Eastleigh 14th street. These guys must be brought to book. @DCI_Kenya.”
The DCI also revealed that the man who was shot by the thugs is in stable condition.
This comes just two weeks after two thugs were captured on CCTV robbing a wines and spirits shop in Umoja Estate.
In the video, the two initially posed as customers before one brandished a pistol and ordered the occupants to lie down.
They ransacked the drawers before leaving but no one was injured during the incident.
Last month the DCI arrested four suspects in connection with a robbery incident in Kilimani where a man lost his phone and laptop as he headed to work.
The video had been widely shared on social media and the suspects were later smoked out of their hideouts in Kawangware, Gatina and Pangani.
