One suspected gangster was on Saturday morning gunned down in Kimathi estate in Nairobi.
His two other accomplices escaped.
The three are said to be among a group of thugs who use motorcycles to commit robberies in Eastlands .
Kamukunji Sub County Police Commander Adamson Bungei described the killing of the suspected thug as a major breakthrough.
“They are dangerous and armed and they normally hide their identity or number plates. We are however on their watch,” said Bungei.
Bungei has urged Nairobi residents to report any incidents of crime that happen within their vicinity.
