NAIROBI, Kenya — A police officer in a central Kenyan town went on a shooting rampage, killing 10 people in three different bars, officials and a local journalist said Sunday.

The shooting spree happened late Saturday in Siakago, 90 miles (150 kilometers) northeast of the capital, Nairobi.

Officials are investigating the shootings, said Provincial Police Chief Marcus Ochole. He confirmed that 10 people had been killed but said he couldn't immediately provide details.

John Chelimo, the district commissioner, said the suspect, who he said was in his 30s, went out Saturday night looking for a female friend but that he couldn't find her. The officer is in police custody, Chelimo said.
