A JKUAT student was gunned dead on Wednesday night by three thugs who also stripped him of his laptop and other valuables.
Kenneth Ndung’u was shot once in the head after the thieves wrestled him to the ground.
The body of the young student was found in front of Juja.
Police confirmed that the shooting took place outside the university’s campus in Juja while the student was on his way home.
The killing of the 20 year-old has sent waves of shock through the entire school.
In another incident, a gangster attacked and killed an Ethiopian worshipper on Sunday. The suspect allegedly killed the worshipper inside a church at Todonyang area in Turkana County.
Eye witnesses said the attacker ran into the Catholic church located close to the Kenya-Ethiopia border and shot some bullets before fleeing the scene.
His single victim, who was bleeding profusely after a bullet caught him, was rushed to hospital and was later confirmed dead.
After the murder, the Ethiopian government issued a-week deadline which ended on Monday for the Kenyan authorities to capture the murderer.
On Tuesday, area County Commissioner Stephen Ikua vowed that the assailant would be apprehended in the shortest time possible.
Local leaders also shared the same sentiments, assuring the Ethiopian government that the suspect will be tracked down and found in the shortest possible time.
Speaking during a forum of Chiefs and other administrators in the region, Mr Ikua promised that security agents were working round the clock to tame the tension existing in the area.
