Kenyan policeman shoots dead six people including wife


A police officer in Kenya shot dead his wife and five other people with an AK-47 in the early hours of Tuesday morning, officials have said. A neighbour heard “a loud bang” from the officer’s home at 01:00 local time, according to a police report. The policeman then went on what officials are calling a “shooting spree” in Kabete, near the capital, Nairobi, killing five others. The officer later took his own life, a police statement said. The motive behind the killings is unclear, but police said the couple had been feuding, according to the AFP news agency. “We are told that the couple had issues and were quarrelling before,” police chief Francis Wahome told AFP.(BBC)…[+]
