Police in Masaka is hunting for unknown thugs that attacked Muto hardware located along Buddu Street in Masaka Town, where they killed a security guard and robbed unknown sums of money.

The incident occurred on Sunday night when armed robbers opened up fire at the Hardware shop, instantly killing a security guard and injuring another worker at the station.

The deceased have been identified as Moses Musinguzi, a solider attached to the Reserve Force Unit in Masaka, and Shafick Kigundu, a casual laborer who died on way to hospital after sustaining bullets wounds. 

Moses Kaliisa, the proprietor of the Hardware shop says he is yet to establish the amount of money that was stolen because the workers were still balancing the books when the robbery happened.

He narrates that the cashiers were put on gunpoint and ordered to surrender all the money.

Lameck Kigozi, the southern region Police spokesperson says preliminary police investigations indicate that the robbers are suspected to have been about four in number and allegedly moving on motorcycles according to eyewitnesses.

Kigozi reveals that police have tried using a sniffer dog to trace the robbers but without success as yet because the scene had been interfered by many people that gathered at the hardware shortly after the incident,

The Crime scene is still sealed by Police, and according to Kigozi they have got some important clues that will aid their investigations.

He explains that they are now hunting for a Sub Machine Gun (SMG) which was used in the robbery, basing on the bullet cartridges recovered at the crime scene.
