The two men involved in Tuesday’s shooting incident at Ayeduase, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region have died.

Both passed on later at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where they were receiving medical attention.

Francis Zabanga, driver in-charge of a vehicle with registration number GR 2019-17, on Tuesday morning November 17, reportedly shot himself in the head soon after shooting a painter Kwame Amoah from close range over a traffic row.

The painter was said to have been shot three times by the gun-wielding driver in the abdomen in the ensuing argument with his assailant, which occurred at about 8:30am on the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST)-Ayeduase road.

The two seriously-injured men were rushed to the hospital after police arrived at the crime scene.

While Amoah, who remained in a critical condition, was rushed to the hospital for treatment, the driver was in a pool of blood after attempting to take his own life following the incident.

He was later transported to the hospital by armed police officers in critical condition.

A heated argument ensued between the two after Amoah questioned the unidentified driver for driving carelessly as he attempted to overtake other drivers on the road.
