The dead were allegedly being driven by armed men in a Toyota Prado when they opened fire on them while they were in a Suzuki Swift. Locals flocked to the scene to learn what had happened before police arrived.  At this point, they discovered the bodies, covered in pools of blood, sprawled out on the ground close to the car.

After the police arrived, they discovered that the deceased’s car contained two daggers and an identity card. The bodies were then moved to City Mortuary for identification.

The driver was shot in the head, killing him in his seat and causing his upper body to fall onto the passenger seat, symbolizing the violent nature of the crime. It looked like the man in the front passenger seat tried to get out before he got shot in the head.

The others, who appeared to have tried to run away as well, were shot. Their bodies were found near the car, their doors ajar, lying next to each other.

The witnesses prevented anyone trying to enter the scene while they waited for the police to show up, especially those who seemed to have plans to gather objects from the car and come into contact with the bodies.

Some Kenyans, however, were incensed at the police’s sluggish handling of the situation and questioned why the bodies remained at the scene hours after the shooting.
