This incident happened at Likoni Road in Nairobi, Kenya after they tried stealing from a premises in the area.
According to Mpasho News, a shoot out ensued after the officers intercepted the thugs near Tetra Pak some minutes after 8am on Monday while they were planning to commit the crime.
The police later recovered a ceska pistol, a pocket phone, handcuffs while a Toyota Funcargo which they say the criminals were using as a get away vehicle was also seized.
The police have now gone after two other suspects who were part of the gang but escaped during the shoot out.
According to reports, it was gathered that the gang uses their car to block their victims before the others – who usually ride on a motorbike – come and rob them.
They have been on the police’s most wanted list for a while and it was only a matter of time before their deeds caught up with them.
