Kirinyaga residents storm Kianyanga Police Station after accusing a police officer of shooting dead a youth during patrol.

According to reports, the residents had accompanied the family of the deceased who demanded answers from the police officers.

Friends of the deceased told the press that they were playing pool when the police officers arrived forcing them to flee.

They then ran in different directions and hoped that each of the members was safe only to later learn that their friend had been shot dead and the body taken to the mortuary.

“We thought he went home, but police officers killed him and took the body to Kerugoya mortuary,” a resident said.
