A youthful police constable from Buuri West in Meru County, Kenya committed suicide following a domestic dispute with his wife.

Michael Siwalo allegedly shot his spouse, Silvia Ramat Letei, in the stomach at 6:15pm before turning the gun on himself and fired a bullet in his chest.

The incident happened at the couple’s house in Panama area, Timau Township in Meru County.

In a report filed at Timau Police Station, Siwalo, whose service number is 116272, is said to have shot his 25-year-old partner once.

“Police proceeded to the scene and found the officer’s wife seated against the wall near the main door. She was in a lot of pain, and was bleeding [profusely],” reveals the police statement, saying Letei was taken to Nanyuki Teaching and Referral Hospital in critical condition.
