A senior police officer in Riruta succumbed to gunshot wounds early Thursday morning.
Benson Indeche, who was in charge of operations, was shot after a disagreement with colleagues who were on patrol in Kawangware, Nairobi, at around 3am.
The officer, who was allegedly drunk at the time of the incident, had differed with some boda boda riders at Coast area bus stop in Kawangware. He had threatened to shoot at the riders.
The riders alerted the officers on patrol who responded immediately and ordered Mr Indeche to surrender before he started shooting at them.
He injured an officer on his left arm before the officers overpowered him.
