The hospitalised victim of a shooting incident at Alajo in Accra has died, a family source has confirmed to Joy News.

The victim, Richard Yaw Boadi, was sent to the Greater Accra Regional (Ridge) Hospital Tuesday afternoon in critical condition after a bullet was   said to have penetrated the lower part of his stomach.

It followed an altercation between 32-year-old Yaw Boadi and the suspect, Nana Frimpong, in front of a garage at the suburb.

Yaw, a mechanic, had reportedly asked Nana Frimpong to move his metallic red Hyundai vehicle some meters away to enable him (Yaw) to park a 207 Benz bus.

The suspect refused and in the ensuing argument, Frimpong allegedly fired a warning shot and later shot the victim.

Yaw Boadi had been on admission since Tuesday and passed on Wednesday evening after reportedly losing a lot of blood.

Medical report indicates that his right kidney was so hard hit that it had to be removed; his colon was also cut and joined.

The alleged shooter, Nana Frimpong, was arrested last Tuesday after angry residents and workers at the garage had assaulted him and damaged his car.
