The details revealed by the ASP also mention that the daytime guard David reported hearing guns being cocked but he ignored it being an alarming sign and assumed it was just a safety precaution.

The case of gun violence and shooting has been disturbing the country for the past few days and the police are currently doing everything that they can to put an end to this.
In one similar case, another security guard was just arrested a day before the incident involving Rogers. In this case, a security guard who is associated with another private firm in the country was arrested after he allegedly shot and killed another security guard whom he used to work with.
The tragic incident took place in the Tororo District in Eastern Uganda. The name of the deceased security guard was John Okudi and he was just 27 years old at the time of his death. He was attached to Saracen (U) Ltd and he was allegedly shot by his colleague Moses Okedi.
Even though the actual reason behind the shooting is not clear, it is assumed that the reason was a disagreement on some matter. The shooting took place in Tororo Municipality where both the security guards were deployed.

In the reported event, a security guard who is attached to another private firm was allegedly shot dead by one of his colleagues in a rented house in the location mentioned above.
John Mujumbi, a 25-year-old security guard who was attached to the company Capital Guard and Patrol was the name who was reported dead and the person who is believed to be the reason behind his death is another security guard of the same firm named Peter Ochoroi. He is 26 years old.
Peter Ochoroi is also the roommate of the deceased John Mujumbi. The reason behind the shooting is also cited to be some kind of disagreement between the colleagues and the event took place around 12:30 pm on Saturday. They both were employed at the same company and the room that they both shared was also provided by their employer.
As much as it is shocking and frightening, another incident of the same nature was also reported to the officials. Ben Amaku was a security guard who used to work for the company Security Group Africa Company Ltd. On the same day as the death of John Mujumbi, Ben Amaku was also reportedly shot dead.
What is even more frightening is the fact that the person responsible for the death of Ben Amaku is still unknown.
The reports available from the police department say that the shooting took place around 1:50 am and the location where the event happened was Novafina medical center which is located along Rhino Camp Road in Baruku central cell.
