Kevin was then rushed to Nairobi women’s hospital where the suspect Ouko later joined them before reporting the matter to Kilimani Police where he was arrested and still being held.

The suspect was arrested and led the police to Senteu Plaza which is adjacent to Galana Suites: this is where the gun and ammunition were discovered.
