According to the Police, they have opened investigations about the incident that occurred today morning at Quality Supermarket in Naalya.

In the statement, it is noted that the deceased and his other two colleagues came to Quality Supermarket for shopping.

The deceased remained in the car and after shopping one of them released a lowry which knocked one of the cars in the parking which called for the ‘Askari’s’ attention.

One security guard identified as Babu Aweza reprimanded the group but they were unwilling to take it in.

They refused to heed to his pleas to stop and address the issue with the owner of the other car.

Police said that in the process of reversing, the deceased crushed ‘Askari’ Babu’s leg which infuriated another guard on duty identified as Moses Angoria who ran to his century box and picked up his SAR gun and shot the deceased at his mouth while he was on his car steering.

The colleagues then rushed the deceased to Independent hospital Ntinda where he was confirmed dead.

Meanwhile, the police statement also noted that the CCTV cameras at the supermarket could not show the scene but rather eyewitnesses gave them an account of the incident.
