Two people were shot dead by unknown assailants on Wednesday night in different places in Ukunda town, Kwale County.
One of the victim was shot while going home after performing a prayer at Masjid Irshad at 8 pm.
The other one, a 70-year-old man was gunned down just 30 minutes later at his house in Shamu village.
Msambweni OCPD Joseph Chebusit confirmed the two incidents saying police have launched investigations.
Police, however, suspect the killings was executed by the same assailants.
“The two attacks happened in a span of 30 minutes which was well planed by the gunmen. The assailant did not steal anything from the victims,” said Chebusit.
The bodies were taken to Msambweni County Referral Hospital mortuary.
