Thirty year old Wycliff Wawire a security guard with Texas Alarm firm was shot dead by a civilian cop at around 8.30pm.
Eye witnesses say that Wawire was shot dead after a staff at the Naivas Supermarket at Mountain Mall raised an alarm about thugs in the area.
“A lady staff at the supermarket opened the door and alerted the public about two thugs that had robbed the supermarket. That is when a civilian cop unleashed his gun and shot at the guard,” said a lady selling merchandise right outside the supermarket.
The two suspected thugs however escaped with an unknown amount of money.
