During the Monday night incident in Karati village along the Naivasha-Kirima road, one suspect was gunned down by police and a pistol recovered.
The cleric and the boda boda operator are admitted in the hospital after being shot in the stomach and thigh respectively.
The incident came barely a day after police nabbed a suspect and recovered a pistol and two rounds of ammunition that had been stolen from a police officer in Kayole last year.
