Three children and a herder were killed by bandits in Kerio Valley, Elgeyo Marakwet, on Sunday.
Six other people were injured in the incident in the Kapkoros neighborhood.
The Tot primary school students were playing in a nearby field when bandits sprayed the area with bullets.
The injured have been transported to local hospitals for treatment.
