Corporal Gracious Taremwa, the officer overseeing operations at Burere police station, is currently evading authorities after fatally shooting an onlooker at a crime scene on Wednesday.

The Greater Bushenyi Regional police spokesperson, Martial Tumusiime, provided details surrounding the shooting incident. Taremwa allegedly shot and killed Osbert Bitahwa, a resident of Rwajere Central Cell in Burere sub-county. The fatal incident occurred as Taremwa, along with police constable Derick Mwendya, were in pursuit of Mayas Katurebe for allegedly obtaining money under false pretenses.

Tumusiime explained that while attempting to arrest the suspect, the officers, accompanied by LC I chairman Moses Kiwanuka, approached the suspect’s residence, leading to a confrontation. The suspect reportedly grappled with Taremwa, using a blanket to cover him, ultimately causing a scuffle that prompted both officers to intervene.

During the altercation, Taremwa discharged his firearm, aiming to subdue the suspect. Unfortunately, a bystander, Osbert Bitahwa, was hit and fatally wounded by the stray bullet while observing the commotion with other onlookers. Following the incident, the suspect managed to escape with police handcuffs, and Taremwa fled the scene.

Preliminary investigations revealed the deceased’s body with a bullet wound to the head, and discrepancies were noted with the firearm used in the shooting. The gun recovered had 28 rounds of ammunition instead of the recorded 30 rounds. Additionally, one cartridge was retrieved at the scene. The deceased’s body was transferred to Nsiika Health Centre IV for postmortem examination.

Moses Kiwanuka commented on the shooting, describing it as an accidental incident. He assured the deceased’s family of their readiness to assist in seeking justice for the tragic event. Authorities are currently engaged in the ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting and subsequent fatality.

The past 48 hours have been eventful for Atlanta rapper Killer Mike. Following the release of his first solo album in over a decade, “MICHAEL,” last year, the Outkast collaborator and Run The Jewels member found himself at the center of attention with three Grammy wins. While the recognition for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song and Performance for “Scientists & Engineers” brought a triumphant moment, it was marred by an unexpected incident at the Grammys pre-show where videos circulated online showing Mike being escorted out in handcuffs by the police.

Details about the arrest were initially scarce, but it later emerged that he was taken into custody following an encounter with event security. Released on the same day, Killer Mike opted to focus more on his Grammy victories than the arrest when questioned by the media.

Now, a new development in the rapper’s life takes center stage, involving his 21-year-old son. According to TMZ, Killer Mike’s son underwent a kidney transplant earlier today. The young man had been on the transplant waitlist for three years before being moved up last year. While details about the ongoing situation are limited, this development adds a layer of personal significance to Killer Mike’s recent highs and challenges.

When addressing his Grammy arrest, Killer Mike kept his response succinct, stating, “We hit a speed bump, and then we head back to the party.” His initial Grammy win was more than 15 years ago, a collaboration with Outkast, and this recent trio of wins marked a triumphant return. As Killer Mike navigates the complexities of his personal and professional life, thoughts and well-wishes pour in from fans.
