Gun shots at funeral, 11 injured
Eleven funeral mourners have sustained gunshot wounds at Nsuapemso near Akyem Nsutem in the Eastern region.
The incident occurred Friday night during a wake keeping when the scores of hunters thronged the funeral ground to perform gunshot exhibition.
However, one of the shots mistakenly diverted into the mourners injuring eleven of them.
The victims have been rushed to Osiem Hawa memorial hospital while those in critical condition were rushed to Koforidua General Hospital.
The funeral was being held for Kwabena Gyeke, 38, a hunter, who felt into a mining pit and died some months ago.
