Security forces early Thursday gunned down an armed man clad in military uniform in the Black Sea area of the capital Mogadishu.

Witnesses said the man was shot dead after residents reported he had forcefully robbed some people in the area Wednesday night.

The security forces shot the man after he failed to surrender and instead engaged them in gunfire, sources said.

A police constable was last week sentenced to eight years in prison by a military court in Mogadishu for robbery with violence.
