Two suspected thugs including a woman were last night shot dead by police in a botched robbery in the Muthaiga area and a gun was found on them.

Police say a third suspect managed to escape on foot with injuries.

The suspects were riding on a motor vehicle to a mission when they were ambushed by police along Old Kiambu Road.

Their car had several valuables believed to have been stolen and 150 master keys.

Police say the group had tampered with the number plates of their car to avoid detection.

This increased to five, the number of suspects killed since Saturday in Nairobi in a new drive. The bodies were taken to the mortuary.
