“When I heard the shots on arrival at my house, I just saw four shells so that means – maybe, I don’t know how much shots he take but I carried him to the ambulance and then I saw the shot on his chest, so maybe he die on the spot,” one resident, whose identity was concealed, told MBC Prime.

Relatives of the deceased now want answers and have raised questions regarding why deadly force was used.

A statement issued by the police said the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting are currently being investigated by a separate police unit.
