The attack took place in Shimbirey, about 50 km from Garissa town late on Sunday, leaving 4 people wounded, according to Kenyan police.
David Kerina, police boss in Garissa town, said the attackers fled from the crime scene uncaught.

He says eight hooded militants, all armed with AK-47 rifles were involved in the attack.
