A prison warder shot dead his colleague and injured another at Embu Provincial Prison early Sunday morning under unclear circumstances.

Mohamed Said Omar aged 34 and a Muslim cleric were killed in a hail of bullets while heading to mosque for morning prayers while the 28 year old Kennedy Muriithi Njagi sustained fractures on both legs from three bullets.

The suspect Wario Fora Boru was guarding near the administration block together with Muriithi before turning on them with his gun at around 5am.

Officer in charge of the prison Charles Mutembei said Muriithi was first rushed to Embu Children Hospital-Tenri for treatment before being referred to Kijabe Mission Hospital for further treatment.

Mutembei said the suspect turned himself in at Itabua police station while the deceased’s body was taken to Embu Level Five Hospital mortuary.
