One thug was killed, another sustained serious injuries and others escaped in a foiled siege on Sunday at a Karen home, Nairobi.
The heavily armed gang of seven stormed the residence with an intention of robbing the guests at the uptown home.
The host, who is a licensed firearm holder managed to rescue the visitors who were just about to depart at around 1am.
Security footages show how the licensed firearm holder fired several rounds of ammunition, while the robbers scampered for safety.
“One of the runaway suspects was armed with an AK-47 rifle. We are hunting them down,” Karen Officer Commanding Police Division Suiyanka Cunningham said.
