Panic as gunman storms church brandishing two rifles
On his way out, the angry gunman landed a sharp slap on a worshipper who was seated by the door, before firing several shots in the air outside the church.
“Police officers who were on patrol responded to the gunfire sound, and managed to disarm Butinane, after which he was arrested and taken to Tot Police Station,” the police boss was quoted in a KNA report.
Rono added that police searched the suspect’s home and found 214 rounds of 7.62 mm special as well as two more AK-47 guns of serial numbers 298415 and 56-1-28037478.
It is not clear what Butinane’s intentions were, but the police boss said they have launched investigations.
The headteacher of Tot Primary School is expected to record a statement as well.
