Police are holding a patient who shot and killed a nurse at Chiromo Lane Medical Centre in Nairobi.  The man who is a civilian firearm holder, went to seek treatment at the hospital Wednesday evening when his firearm discharged a bullet hitting the nurse. Gigiri police boss Vitalis Otieno said the patient will be in custody until investigations into the incident are completed. Mr Otieno said initial report from the hospital indicated that the patient mishandled his firearm but the police are investigating the report. The nurse has been identified as Faustine Badolo. INTOXICATED A nurse at the hospital said that the patient who looked intoxicated arrived in the company of his sister at around 7pm. “The security guards asked the patient to leave his gun at the gate but he refused and said that he was licensed to carry his gun and would not leave it in someone else’s hands,” he said. The nurse said the patient went inside the consultation room with the gun and was seen by the doctor and was supposed to be admitted. “Faustin was in the process of admitting the patient at the ward and while he was going about his business, we heard the gunshot and then we saw him on the floor, bleeding,” the nurse said. The nurse added that they found the patient sitting on the chair with both his hands on his head and the gun placed on the table. Faustin’s wife, Doreen Akinyi, said her husband was shot in the left eye and his body which is at the Chiromo Mortuary also had a large wound on the forehead.
