A suspected thug was Tuesday night shot and killed in Nairobi’s Mukuru slums.
Police said they recovered a homemade gun and a police pocket phone from him.
Makadara police boss Judith Nyongesa said two of his accomplices managed to escape on foot.
She said one of the suspects, who is a female, is wanted by police over a series of crimes in different parts of the city.
Nyongesa identified the slain gangster as Stanley alias ‘Untouchable’.
The police boss said her officers were alerted by residents that a gang of three was robbing people at gunpoint along Mariakani Road in South B.
It was then that police responded and killed one in a confrontation.
She described the killed suspect as a notorious criminal who lived in the Shauri Moyo estate.
“One of those who escaped is a notorious woman who is believed to be ferrying firearms to the suspects,” she added.
