Officers recovered guns, bullets and other items believed to have been used for break-ins.

Police have shot dead five suspected robbers in Kiambu and recovered two guns, several rounds of ammunition and an assortment of items believed to have been stolen.

Kiambu County Police Commander Larry Kieng’ said the suspects were trailed from Nairobi by officers from the Special Crime Prevention Unit who had received information about their intended robbery.

“When officers confirmed that indeed they intended to rob, they challenged them to surrender but instead they shot at the officers, prompting them to retaliate and unfortunately five of them were fatally injured,” said Mr Kieng’.

He said that police recovered a pistol loaded with six rounds of ammunition and a homemade pistol loaded with two bullets.

“They also had several master keys, tools believed to be used for break-ins and phones that were stolen,” Mr Kieng’ said.
