One person was shot dead at a construction site in Bamburi, Mombasa just about 10 meters away from where another business man was shot in the stomach by armed criminals nearly a fortnight ago.
According to witnesses the gang wanted money but did not get any. In the incident two weeks earlier that was recorded on CCtv at the restaurant, two armed criminals walked into the restaurant roughed up some customers and shot aimlessly injuring one attendant before running away.
Police suspected that the same criminals were behind today’s killing.
The incident came barely two days after a CID officer attached to the CID dog section was shot dead, as armed criminals attempted to rob a shop in the area.
Crime in the county had been on the rise with the latest incident occurring minutes after the county commissioner Nelson Marwa assured the county residents that security had been beefed up in the county especially in this holy month of Ramadhan, he also issued a stern warning to criminals saying their days are numbered.
