A private security guard working with Capital Guards and Patrol has shot dead his colleague under unclear circumstances.
Peter Ochoroi, 26, allegedly shot dead in the forehead his colleague, John Mujumbi, 25, also working with the same security company on Saturday at about 12.30 pm in Kalule Zone, Lukuli parish in Makindye Division in Kampala.

According to police, at the time of the shooting, Mujumbi was stationed at IDAK Apartments in Konge as part of his security duties. Police says the two individuals had been sharing a rented room provided by their company and were armed with SAR semi-automatic rifles, each loaded with five rounds of ammunition.
Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire says the two guards were engaged in an argument conducted in a language they did not understand and shortly thereafter, a gunshot was heard originating from the same room.
Police recovered the two rifles, two small magazines, capable of holding five rounds each, and two sets of company uniforms were found in the room. Ochoroi is reportedly on the run.
The incident comes just 24 hours after Ivan Wabwire, the police constable on Friday at about 12.30 pm shot and killed Uttam Bhandari an Indian national and moneylender inside Rajja Chambers along Parliament Avenue in Kampala following a disagreement over a loan repayment.
Last week on Saturday, popular vlogger Tusubira Ibrahim alias Isma Olaxess was killed after being shot at least 8 times by yet-to-be-identified gunmen just days after an army bodyguard Pte Wilson Sabiiti killed his boss and state minister for Labour Charles Engola after an argument over allowances.
In a related development, Ben Amaku, a security guard attached to Security Group Africa (SGA) was also on Saturday shot dead by unknown people in Arua city, northern Uganda.

The incident happened on Saturday at Novafinia medical center located along Rhinocamp Road in Baruku central cell. Amaku had been deployed to guard the medical center when unknown assailants shot him.

According to some eyewitnesses who spoke on condition of anonymity, three men wearing face masks entered the facility and switched off the lights. This attracted the attention of the security guard who was then shot by one of the assailants.

Muhammed Bayo, the LC I chairperson of Baruku central cell in Arua central division says that the assailants who are three in number came to the facility under the guise of visiting a patient.

Over the past two weeks, security agencies in Arua have been battling with a new wave of armed robberies. On May 1, three suspected criminal gangs attacked Premier Betting Center along Transport Road in Arua central division at around 11:40 pm and turned off the lights, and made off with an unspecified amount of money.

Last month, an unidentified armed robber attacked Champion Betting Center along the Arua-Pakwach highway in Nsambia, Awindiri ward and robbed an unspecified amount of money, and shot one person Collins Adule who is still recovering from gunshot wounds.
Meanwhile, police in Wandegeya on Saturday arrested Milton Apuret a security guard attached to B-safe Security Systems Company. Apuret was guarding Tipy Nice Limited Supermarket at Jujju Road in Wandegeya when he shot Geoffrey Mwesigwa who had caused a road crash and knocked the wall of the supermarket, he was guarding.

In an attempt to prevent the driver from fleeing the scene, Apuret shot Mwesigwa who had entered a nearby shop adjacent to the supermarket. The victim is receiving treatment at Mulago hospital where he was rushed after the incident.
