Investigations into the circumstances under which city lawyer Assa Nyakundi shot and killed his son have taken a new twist after detectives stumbled upon 481 rounds of ammunition and two more guns in his house.

The lawyer, 60, meanwhile remained in hospital, citing blood pressure complications, even as an internal police communication indicated he was being treated as a suspect.

One of the firearms recovered from the 60-year-old lawyer’s house at Muthaiga Parkside Estate is a Sig Sauer pistol that was found in hi master bedroom.

Also found in the bedroom were two empty magazines, 285 rounds of 9mm bullets, 57 rounds of .375mm bullets and 139 rounds of 12 gauge bullets.
