Boy, 7, shoots 3-year-old sister in Kumasi

A three-year-old girl was accidentally shot by her seven-year-old brother when the two were playing with a gun.

Reports said the kids got the gun from a neighbour’s unlocked room. The incident happened at Asuoyeboah, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

A medical officer at the Kwadaso SDA hospital, Dr. Charles Osei Tutu Agyemang told Citi News: “She had been shot in the head; we saw that part of the brain was actually coming out. So we bandaged it.”

“The girl was actually in coma when they brought her; she was bleeding till she eventually died after receiving treatment from the intensive care unit.”

She was transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where she died.
