Gunmen kill bride on Nairobi street four days to her wedding

Gunmen on Monday shot dead a woman and seriously injured her brother-in-law as they shopped in Nairobi for her wedding which had been set for Saturday.
Three gunmen are alleged to have trailed the two to Maru Italian Shoes along Kimathi Street in the city.
At around 4pm, the gunmen entered the shop, ordered the two to raise their hands then shot them.
The assailants then escaped towards Tom Mboya Street.
The two victims are said to have been shopping for the wedding that was scheduled for Saturday at Mathare SDA Church.
The bridegroom, who had accompanied the two, escaped unhurt. He told the police that nothing was stolen from them.
Central OCPD Patrick Oduma confirmed that the injured man was rushed to hospital but the woman died on the spot.
“The intention was not to steal and we are investigating a case of murder,” said Mr Oduma.
