A Police officer this afternoon took his own life after shooting and killing a fellow police officer and an LDU personnel.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman Luke Owoyesigire identified the deceased as PC Ben Ojilong, who was attached to the Bunamwaya Community Police.
The slain victims are Cpl. Alex Opito and an LDU personnel that was yet to be identified.
The shooting took place on Tuesday afternoon at around 3pm, at the Bunamwaya police station in Makindye Sabagabo.
According to Owoyesigire, Ojilong and his colleague Opito were involved in a heated argument on how to proceed with a case.
As they exchanged, Ojilong reportedly picked up his gun and shot Opito several times, killing him instantly.
“One LDU personnel who was passing by was seriously wounded in the process. Ojilong later committed suicide by shooting,” Owoyesigire said.
“The LDU that had sustained injuries was later pronounced dead on arrival at Kitebi H/C.”
Police in the area commenced investigations into the incident, while the bodies were taken to Mulago Hospital Mortuary.
