Kenya Wildlife Service rangers recovered a firearm during the incident. The gang is suspected to have been responsible for the killing of two elephants three weeks ago in the same area. The dead, a Kenyan and Tanzanian, were gunned down while shooting at a herd of elephants. The other suspects escaped with injuries and are still being pursued.
