AN ELDERLY man has done the unthinkable as he has allegedly shot his 22-year-old biological son after a slight argument over a television set.
The victim, Evans Oduro Yeboah, who sustained gunshot wounds in his stomach, is currently responding to treatment at the Nkawie Government Hospital.
The trigger-happy suspect, Kwaku Yeboah, of Essuowin near Nkawie, in the Ashanti Region, has since been apprehended by the police to face the law.
According to the police, Yeboah, after committing the heinous crime around 6:40pm on May 3, 2022, quickly went into hiding, perhaps to avert arrest.
The police, however, did not give up as they tracked and eventually arrested him from his hideout at Ahwerewa Road to assist in investigations.
Suspect Yeboah, a police report has confirmed, admitted to having shot his son after an argument over a television set, following a thorough interrogation.
The police have since retrieved the single barrel gun that the suspect used to shoot his son at close range, to help in their investigations.
A police report, sighted by DAILY GUIDE, said one Nana Serwaa of Essuowin alerted the police that Yeboah had allegedly shot his son, Evans, with a single barrel gun.
According to the police, Nana Serwaa added that the victim was bleeding profusely so he was rushed to the Nkawie Government Hospital for treatment.
“Police upon receipt of the information, accompanied the complainant to the scene, but the suspect had already bolted,” part of the police report disclosed.
“Later, suspect was arrested from his hideout at Ahwerewa Road, and during interrogation he admitted having shot his son with a single barrel gun due to a misunderstanding that ensued between them on a television set,” the report added.
The police report said the suspect has since been detained for further investigation, adding that, “The said gun has been retrieved in a nearby bush at Essuowin.”
