WAJIR, Kenya, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Gunmen executed a drive-by shooting past a church in Wajir, Kenya, Wednesday, exchanged fire with police and set two explosives before fleeing, police said.

Police said the nighttime attack left one person dead and three wounded, The Standard reported. The explosives appeared to be grenades.

Police official Isaiah Odhiambo said authorities had taken control of the situation and they were hunting down the gunmen, who were in two vehicles.
