Three suspected thugs were last night shot dead in Nairobi’s Muthurwa area in a botched robbery incident.
Police say the three suspects who were armed with knives attacked a motorist and snatched his mobile phone.
When confronted by the police, the said thug then attempted to stab a police officer forcing the police officer to retaliate shooting him and his two counterparts dead.
Motorists plying Haile Salassie road near Muthurwa market have lamented rampant robberies by suspected thugs in the area.
Most victims of the thugs have lost phones, some lost side mirrors of their vehicles and wheel caps.
