The Kampala Metropolitan deputy Police Spokesperson,  Luke Owoyesigyire, tells New Vision, that one Anold Ainebyona Mugisha,  was shot on the mouth by Moses Angoria, a security guard attached to Saracen security company while guarding at quality Supermarket. 

He says a team of homicide officers from both Namugongo and Kira road Police visited the scene and also instituted a team to investigate into matter vide case file,  CRB 530/2019.

"We recovered the killer gun and also saved the accused from being beaten by the mob and is now admitted in Mulago Hospital for first aid following the injuries he sustained," says Owoyesigyire.

FINDINGS
The Police preliminary findings indicate that the deceased and his two other colleagues came to the supermarket for shopping, but the deceased remained in the car and after shopping,  that one of the three released a trolley, which knocked one of the cars in the parking. 

In the process of reversing,  the deceased knocked at the foot of one Askari Babu Awaze.
