A UPDF soldier in Soroti town Saturday morning shot and killed three people on spot.
Odong Christopher, a Sergeant in the Air Defence 35th Battalion, claims the three attempted to steal his mobile phone and money.
A source says the real cause of the shooting was a prostitute identified as Hadijja who reportedly “detoothed” the soldier at a bar called Shooters located along Jumabai road in Soroti town.
The dejected soldier storms out of the bar and returned moments later with his gun shooting randomly.
According to witnesses, the shooting left three other people badly injured while the main target [Hadijja] run for her dear life.
The injured are now admitted at Soroti Regional Referral hospital.
The deceased were taken to Soroti Municipal mortuary.
