According to The Standard, armed officers from the Special Crimes prevention unit trailed the four suspects who were in a hired car to Kathiani-Kungundo road before the shootout.
The victims are believed to be behind a series of robberies in Nairobi.
The gangsters are believed to operate from a hideout in Kathiani, Machakos County.
Police recovered a pistol, communication equipment and electronic goods from the suspects.
The slain suspects were young men believed to be aged between 19-24 years.
Their bodies have since been moved to a mortuary in Machakos with investigations underway.
This comes a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta congratulated the security forces for the manner in which they maintained security during the recently concluded elections.
