In a police report, the deceased’s brother, Wycliff Omwenga, narrated that he was in preparing dinner in the kitchen, when he heard a gunshot.
On approaching the direction where he heard the gun shot sound emanate from, Wycliff found Kevin lying, face down, with blood oozing from his chest.
Bodo, on the other hand, was still in the room but in a hurry to leave.
Wycliff then rushed his brother to the Nairobi Women’s Hospital Adams branch, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
