Tororo District Police Commander Adams Kimuli says that preliminary investigations reveal that Kedi used a pump action rifle gun to shoot his colleague identified as John Okudi at around 8 am, killing him instantly. He says that Kedi has now been arrested together with one person who allegedly witnessed the fight.
