Police in Gigiri are holding a patient who shot dead a nurse at the Chiromo Lane Medical Centre on Wednesday night. The man, who is a licensed civilian firearm holder, had gone to seek treatment at the hospital at 7.30pm when his firearm discharged the bullet hitting the nurse, identified as Faustin Badolo. Gigiri OCPD Vitalis Otieno said the suspect would be held in custody until investigations into the incident are complete. He said the initial report from the hospital was that the patient mishandled his firearm. He added that police are investigating the report. A nurse at the hospital said that the patient, who looked intoxicated, arrived in the company of his sister at around 7pm. LEAVE GUN OUTSIDE “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 with the gun placed on the table. Faustin’s wife, Doreen Akinyi said her husband was shot in the left eye and that his body, which is at the Chiromo Mortuary, also had a large wound on the forehead.
