Administration Police shoots five colleagues dead, commits suicide in Kakamega

An Administration Police officer Tuesday night went berserk and shot dead five of his colleagues at their camp in Shitsala division in Butere, Kakamega County before turning the gun on himself.

The Administration Police officer used his G3 rifle to target the victims at about 8pm before he escaped and later committed suicide. His colleagues say they are yet to know the motive of the attack.

Those who died include a sergeant and four, among them a couple. Police say the victims have all been identified. The killer administration police officer was identified as Mustafa Alando.

The six bodies were later moved to the St Mary’s Hospital Mortuary. Western Regional Commissioner James ole Serian said they are investigating what motivated the attack.

“We are yet to know the motive of the incident because even the attacker is dead,” said Serian.
