A source at Kajuru said the gunmen had tried to gain entrance into the castle through rock near the castle by firing shots into the holiday resort.

“The two people they killed were already tensed in their rooms in one of the towers. They were panicking and they rushed out of their rooms and started running down the stairs.
“The stairs is opened, so as they were running down the staircase, the bandits saw them and shot them,” he said.
