Detectives are investigating the circumstances under which a police officer burst into a hospital and shot dead his lover before turning the gun to himself.
In the shocking incident that occurred in the wee hours of the morning, police constable Benard Sivo stormed Njoro Sub-County hospital and opened fire on his girlfriend Mary Nyambura, who had just been rushed in with a fractured leg.

As the doctors were attending to her, an enraged Sivo stormed the hospital armed with an AK 47 assault rifle and opened fire killing Nyambura on the spot.
