A Ghanaian man in the United States of America identified as Kwabena Michael Amoako shot his wife and killed himself in an attempted murder-suicide.
Whilst Kwabena Amoako himself is dead, his wife is reportedly in hospital in critical condition.
The Ghanaian couple, who lived in Columbus in the U.S state of Ohio, had four children!
MyFox28 Columbus reports that police officers were called to the 4800 block of Glendon Road at around 10:36 p.m. following a report of a domestic violence incident.
Officers said one person, now identified as 49-year-old Kwabena Michael Amoako, was dead, and a 50-year-old woman, also shot, was taken to Riverside Methodist Hospital in critical condition.
A neighbour of the couple, Michael Montgomery said he learned of the shooting when their children knocked on his door to complain about their parents fighting.
“The 16-year-old said they were arguing, they heard two bangs, ran out the door, and came over here,” Montgomery said, “They heard the shooting and dad wouldn’t let them back in the house, so they came knocking on the door.”
Following the incident, reports in Ghana claim the shooting occurred after the wife’s man told him she was moving to Ghana to get married to her ex.
