A police officer went berserk and shot into the air four times while demanding more and free maize flour at a police station in Limuru, Kiambu County.
The constable of police was later disarmed and taken to hospital following the drama at Muna Police Post on Tuesday evening.
Officials working for a voluntary charitable organization- Kenya Diaspora Media- USA planned to deliver 60 bales of flour to locals in Karambiani.
They drove to the police post seeking a police escort for the event that was scheduled to take place on Wednesday and safe custody of the food.
While at the police post they gave out two bales of the said flour to be shared amongst the five officers who were there.
This angered the said officer and it was then that the officer who was at the report office demanded more flour with menace.
Witnesses said he suddenly became irritated and cocked his G3 rifle before he shot into the air four times sending those present into panic and scampering for their safety.
Police said in the process, the said officer attacked one civilian who works with the same organization as a driver namely who claimed he sustained serious injuries on the head, and mouth and complained of chest pain.
He used fists and kicks in the attack after placing his weapon on the floor.
After a lull, senior police officers visited the scene and ordered the officer to be disarmed and taken to the hospital for checks.
Police said after they get a report from the hospital they will decide the way forward.
Cases of mental challenges are on the rise in the service amid efforts to contain the trend.
