A/R: 2 fatally shot, policeman injured as angry mob attack patrol team

Two persons are said to be in critical condition during a confrontation between armed policemen at Adwumakase Kese in the Ashanti Region Thursday.

The victims are receiving treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital after they were hit by bullets while attempting to seize a service rifle belonging to one of the officers at the scene.

The police had attempted to rescue a linguist from Bomfa, another adjoining town who was allegedly under attack by some angry youth from Adwumakase.

The victim reportedly led the team to arrest one of the suspects sparking outrage among the youth who destroyed the windscreen of a service vehicle and injured an officer in an attempt to free the suspect.
