A senior police officer manning a road block along Suswa Bridge was involved in a fight resulting in the shooting of a junior officer.
According to the police report, the senior officer, Emma Sopiato and her colleagues, inside a Toyota Hilux Double Cabin vehicle, were pursuing a lorry driver who had refused to stop despite being given an order.
The driver began reversing the lorry with an aim of hitting the police vehicle. This infuriated Emma Sopiato who immediately discharged her AK 47. Unfortunately, the junior cop, Fanuel Abongo, was hit on the right side of the ribs and exited through the left side of the ribs.
She was pronounced dead when they got to Kenyatta National Hospital.
The incident is currently under investigation.
