A college student was stabbed to death in Nairobi’s Kayole estate on Friday and her body dumped on a footpath. The 25-year-old Philemon Koome Macharia’s body had multiple stab wounds.
Police believe the Zetech College student was attacked by five gangsters who they later tracked, killing one of them.
According to police, officers rushed to the scene and caught up with the gang. The officers challenged them to stop but instead one of them shot at police.
A toy pistol, a knife, two live ammunition, a wrist watch, four mobile phones and Sh300 were recovered from the fallen gangster.
