The man was run over by a vehicle on Limuru Road after he jumped off a foot bridge at 5am Wednesday.
A police officer, who did not want to be named, said police had set a trap for the man at the park.
The officer said the suspect was about to attack a man, who was walking in the park, and ran when he saw the police.
“He had a metal bar and a rungu that we believe he used to attack his previous victims,” the officer said.
