Nine year old shoots and kills brother in Wassa East


A seven year old pupil at Wassa Attobiase in the Wassa East District of the Western Region, has been shot by his brother.

The deceased only named as Bismarck had his head torn into pieces after the shot.

An eye witness told journalists in Takoradi that the two siblings were playing in front of their father’s house at Attobiase when the older brother went for his father’s locally-manufactured gun and shot the brother on the forehead, killing him instantly.

It was however not clear what triggered the shooting, which happened in the absence of their parents.

Their father only known as Fiifi was said to be at his farm while the mother was at a local corn mill.

The deceased body has been deposited at the morgue while police have begun investigation into the matter to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident.
