An Administration Police officer is admitted to hospital after he attempted suicide by shooting himself moments after killing his 30- year- old girlfriend.

Geoffrey Muthee is receiving treatment at a hospital in Nairobi following the last night incident at Ruai AP camp.

The girlfriend Ruth Wangui was pronounced dead at a hospital in Ruai where she was rushed for treatment.

Nairobi DCI chief Ireri Kamwende said the woman suffered three gunshot wounds in the head and stomach.

The incident adds to the growing cases of spouses killing each other and of police officers turning guns against themselves.
