An Administration Police (AP) officer was on Friday night (April 28) shot dead by the owner of an entertainment joint in Ngong town in Kajiado County.
The suspect pumped four bullets into the chest of the AP officer from close range, killing him on the spot, after a fight broke out over a woman, who was in the company of the night club owner.
Witnesses say the police officer had stared at the woman when she and her businessman lover were exiting the joint, evoking fury in the night club owner.
The incident occurred outside the Ngong night club at 11pm.
Confirming the incident, Kajiado County AP Commander, Philemon Mboya, said, according to witnesses, the now-deceased and the club owner had earlier engaged in a scuffle inside the club before the fatal shooting.
The suspect and the woman were arrested and are being held at the Ngong Police Station.
The body of the deceased was taken to City Mortuary.
