Six armed thugs on Wednesday afternoon cordoned off the hardware shop in Nansana town and shot at the employees as they offloaded cement from a truck. Two, including the Assistant Manager Jimmy Atikuru died on the spot. An unspecified amount of money was taken. According to police, the masked gunmen timed when the cashier was preparing to bank the day’s sales.
