Modern Coast Manager, Kisumu Branch, Peter Otieno Ogallo was on Saturday allegedly shot dead by Ray Green Hotel Manager, Daniel Yona Jaoko.
Yona is said to have fired at the Modern Coast manager thrice in the presence of his family at Polyview Estate around 5AM on Saturday.
He was pronounced dead at Avenue Hospital where he’d been rushed after the fatal incident.
Yona and his girlfriend, one Vivian Meresa have been arrested over the incident and are being held at Kondele Police Station.
The hotelier was dropping her lover home when the shooting ensued.
Drama started when the deceased wanted to remove his Nissan matatu from the parking but found Yona’s black Jeep blocking the way out.
When he approached Yona to allow him to remove the vehicle, the hotelier instead withdrew his gun and shot him, two bullets going through the left chest of the deceased and damaging his lungs.
According to the police, a Ceska pistol with 15 rounds of ammunition was recovered from Yona and another 42 rounds of ammunition at his house.
Further finding indicate that Yona’s firearm was licensed in 2012 and had not complied with the recent directive issued by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i on firearm holders of being registered afresh.
