A law enforcement officer opened fire at the Dandora Total Railway Cross, leaving five individuals wounded. There wasn’t much going on, according to witnesses, until the police started shooting. However, Francis Kamau, the chief of the Kamukunji sub-county police, claimed that while on patrol, the officers spotted three thieves engaged in a robbery and confronted them.


He asserted that the purported robbers pulled out a gun and fired at the officer. Four phones were found, according to the police, and one of them had been accurately recognized by a victim who had provided a statement to the authorities in Dandora.


According to the local OCPD, there has been a long history of phone theft at gunpoint in the vicinity, and authorities have been hunting down the culprits for a considerable amount of time. Passengers who had been waiting before boarding the matatus were among those hurt.


However, locals voiced their worries that the policeman might have shot innocent Kenyans. They assert that he earlier shot a toddler in Huruma and demand that the victims receive justice. One suspect, according to the OCPD, is reportedly being monitored by police while being treated for a head injury from a gunshot wound at Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital.
