Similarly, ballistic experts based at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory linked Hon Barasa’s firearm to the fatal shot that took away Olunga’s life. This followed a report issued by the ballistic experts after the investigating team forwarded Hon Barasa’s Glock Pistol, a cartridge retrieved from the scene, and bullet fragments to the ballistic lab for forensic analysis.
