A licensed gun holder is set to face murder charges after a victim he had shot at a bar along Thika Road, Nairobi died in hospital four months later.
The victim who is a police officer identified as Festus Musyoka died in hospital where he has been since July 2 when he was shot in the neck by the gun holder Dickson Mararo.
The incident at the club after an alleged tiff over who was the bonafide boyfriend of a youthful woman turned into a fight, complete with an exchange of gunfire injuring three people including two police officers.
The exchange of fire involved a civilian gunman, who is alleged to have shot the three who later on surrendered to the police.
Mararo’s firearm, a Glock pistol, was confiscated until the case is determined.
He was freed on Sh5 million cash bail or a Sh10 million bond. He has not afforded to leave because the cash bail was too high.
The court heard that Mararo, who is facing attempted murder charges, shot and injured his three victims at Quiver Lounge on the night of July 2.
The prosecution now plans to upgrade the charges to murder.
