Police Spokesman Andrew Felix Kaweesi was shot thrice in what appears to be a targeted shooting; a scene of crime officer has told Uganda Radio Network.

The source says that two of the gunshots that ended Kaweesi's life were through the back to the chest, while one was shot through the head, to the neck.

Kaweesi was killed by a group of unknown gunmen as he left his home in Kulambiro, a suburb of Kampala this morning. His driver Godfrey Mambewa and bodyguard Kenneth Erau are also confirmed dead.

Eye witnesses say the killers were traveling on a motorcycle and the shooting reportedly lasted more than 10 minutes. Our reporters at the scene say that the vehicle, a police car registration number UP4778, in which the three were traveling, was shot from both sides. The Scene of crime has since been cordoned off.

The deceased, who also doubled as the director of Human Resource in the Uganda Police Force, was one of the scheduled speakers at a Career Seminar at Uganda Christian University.

Kaweesi was due to speak at 10:00 am on the theme, "Career opportunities in the armed forces and how to find them." He was to speak alongside the UPDF Spokesperson Brig. Richard Karemire and Frank Baine, the spokesperson Uganda Prisons Service.

Andrew Kaweesi is survived by a widow and four children. They were expecting their fifth child.
