Two of his accomplices escaped in the 2am incident at the Eldoret West Police Station.
Eldoret West OCPD Smollets Munyanzi confirmed that the thieves gained access to the police station through the back fence.
The officer on duty challenged the three but instead of stopping they ran away, forcing him to fire at them.
The same station was attacked last Thursday, when thieves stole a laptop computer.
