Kenyan teen involved in store shooting in US found shot dead
In a rare case of a suspected deal-gone-sour, a Kenyan living in the United States was killed after a robbery incident.
The boy, Franklin Wainaina Thuo, is suspected to have been in the group of two teenagers who had robbed and killed a shop owner.
A Toyota Sentra which is associated with Franklin was apparently spotted during the robbery.
Hours later, Franklin’s body was found washed up by the Chinook Landing Marina.
His body had multiple gunshots, seemingly inflicted by his partner in crime.
The boy’s family has since organized a gathering to plan for the teens burial.
They, however, failed to reveal the reasons for his murder, sparking a flare of speculations.
“We regret to announce the sudden death of Franklin Wainaina Thuo of Federal Way. Franklin passed way yesterday. Family and friends will be meeting daily at 32613 18th PL SW, WA 98023 to plan for his memorial and burial programs. Your presence, prayers and financial support will be appreciated. To God be the glory,” read the announcement.
