Tanzania Police Kill gunman in Dar es Salaam Shooting Spree (News Central TV)

Police officers in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania have shot and killed a gunman who was on a shooting spree along the Ali Hassan Mwinyi Road from the Selanda Bridge area.

He was allegedly roaming the streets while wielding two assault rifles with city dwellers at his mercy.

Reports say commuters along Oyesterbay-Upanga area were forced to abandon their cars and scamper for safety.

The Selanda Bridge area, which borders Upanga and Oysterbay is home to residents of foreign missions such as the French, Japanese, Kenyan and Russian embassies.

The incident happened just hours after the Inspector-General of Police Simon Sirro assured Tanzanians that crime had dropped by 12 per cent.
