Eldoret policewoman arrested after shooting husband 12 times

A policewoman from the Administration Police Service (APS) has been arrested on allegations of shooting and killing her husband during a domestic dispute on the outskirts of Eldoret town.

The officer, a mother of three, had been on duty at the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) before returning home in the early hours of Sunday morning with her service firearm.

Witnesses reported hearing a heated argument between the couple before gunshots rang out, prompting neighbors to flee for their safety.

The policewoman allegedly fired more than 12 bullets inside their home, killing her husband.

She fled the scene after the shooting but later turned herself in at the Eldoret police station, where she was arrested.

The incident was confirmed by Uasin Gishu County Police Commander Benjamin Mwanthi, who stated that the deceased's body had been moved to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital morgue.

"The female officer is now in our custody, and we are actively investigating the matter," Mwanthi affirmed.

Authorities are currently investigating the incident in order to determine what happened.

The accused is set to appear in court on Monday, October 15.
