Joe said he was therefore amazed at how they ended up shooting the victim who he said was his mother’s only child.

“Oh, they have killed my son,” was all the deceased’s mother could say as he rushed in, wailing.

Joe said, together with his father, they rushed outside to meet a crowd surrounding the deceased’s body covered with a cloth with blood all over the place.

The Awutu Bereku District Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Joshua Semanyo who confirmed the incident said the suspect has been arrested.
