Uganda Police Force have arrested a man suspected of shooting dead a female Chinese national in Mukono last month.
The suspect identified as Fred Katukaya confessed he stole the star pistol on 30, August 2017 and has been using it for various robbery attacks.
“He was found and arrested from Banda at a washing bay,” Kampala Metropolitan Police said in a brief statement on Thursday night.
Upon examining the weapon, out of the 10 bullets, 4 were used.
Investigations indicate that the weapon belongs to Saracen Security Company.
The murder of the Chinese national shocked the nation and compelled IGP Gen Kale Kayihura to visit the crime scene.
He would later task Flying Squad operatives to hunt down the gunman who pulled the trigger at the defenceless Chinese woman.
“We thank the Flying Squad team,lookout teams, crime preventers, commanders on ground and the general public for your cooperation in uprehending these culprits,” said police.
