Police in Kisii County are investigating an incident where 5 students aged between 17 and 32 were found with a gun while drinking at a bar at Kegati.
Kisii County Commander Francis Kooli said police officers arrested the five after receiving information from residents that one of them had a gun.
“The five suspects are in police custody being interrogated. We are trying to find from the main suspect where 29 ammunitions are because the Ceska pistol recovered has a capacity of 32,” said Kooli.
Kooli said the main suspect will be explaining why he was drinking with learners, especially those in secondary school.
“We have documents which indicate that the suspect is a licensed firearm holder. We are using the same to find out whether he is legally in possession of the pistol, ”added Kooli.
He said there are regulations a person who is licensed to own a pistol must follow.
