A student who spoke to this reporter on condition of anonymity said that she heard a gunshot at around 08.45pm and ran towards the administration block only to find Katagwa’s lifeless body lying on the ground.

“After hearing the gunshot sound, all students including me ran to the administration block for refuge only to find our colleague’s lifeless body lying on the ground,” she said.

A staff who preferred anonymity so as to speak freely said the deceased had a heated argument with the guard before the shooting.

“This is an institution of adults where all staff and students are treated with respect. As the two individuals kept on arguing, we played it cool only to hear a gunshot later,” he said.

A team of scene of crime officers that dashed to the university under the command of Jinja Central Police Commander, Mr Godwin Ochaku chased away journalists, students and their lecturers from the premises accusing them of messing up the crime scene.
