Godfrey Sabiti shot his wife, Esther Caroline Akol dead at around 6:30am this morning before shooting himself. The couple has been living with their three children identified as Daniel Odeke, Blessing Kayeng and Gloria Rwoth.  

Although police are still investigating the cause of the shooting, Emillian Kayima, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, suspects it could have been triggered by a domestic brawl.

According to Kayima, Sabiti signed for the gun to report for duty but instead turned it on his wife and himself.  He says they have recovered the gun and five cartridges from the crime scene. Police have handed over the deceased's body to Mulago Hospital for postmortem.

In June last year, Sergeant Isaac Obua ran amok and shot dead four women and three children before he was killed by another soldier.  Obua is said to have been angered by his wife for mismanaging the money he had given her for unspecified activity.
