DCI Director George Kinoti said the gang used a Toyota Axio to block and deflate their victims’ car which was being occupied by three family members (father, mother and son).
Acting on a tip-off, the officers pursued and caught up with them at the said estate where a shootout ensued, leaving two gang members who were firing from outside the car dead.
Two other members of the gang managed to flee but are being sought by the sleuths.
