Police in Naivasha have shot dead two suspected gangsters and foiled a carjacking attempt.
Naivasha police boss Willy Lugusa said the two were in a group of suspected armed gangsters who had masqueraded as police officers in a bid to carjack a lorry transporting goods from Nairobi.
Members of the public who became suspicious of the suspects alerted police on patrol who gave a chase and caught up with the would be carjackers where a shootout ensued.
A home made gun and several rounds of ammunition were recovered during the incident.
Elsewhere in Nairobi’s Kayole estate, armed gangsters last night shot dead a contractor outside his residence.
According to eyewitnesses, the suspected criminals trailed the man before shooting him as he approached his residence.
Police have launched investigations into the incident.
