A murder suspect wanted in connection with the killing of a woman and her daughter was gunned down by Machakos police in Katani.

Two AK 47 rifles and a spent cartridge were recovered from the assailant during the early morning raid.

According to Police reports, the two rifles allegedly belong to a GSU officer, and the spent cartridge matched with that of the guns used in the murder of the two women at Kambi Estate.

The GSU officer suspected to have been aiding the attack is still in police custody.

The raid comes in the wake of Sunday’s attack when unknown assailants shot and killed a woman and her mother at their Kambi Estate home in Machakos County.
