Nana Brentuo was in critical condition after the incident.

The victim was rushed to the Manhyia District Hospital and subsequently referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

According to his apprentice, Evans Kwesi Dabanka, the disagreement started after the suspect’s customer sent his gold to the victim’s shop to be worked on.

He narrated;

“when he missed the first shot, our boss tried to escape but Nana Asamoah shot again. My boss picked up a chair and threw it Nana Asamoah in defence. I could tell that he did so out of fear and frustration. When my boss tried to get out, Nana Asomah shot at him again for the third time. Luckily, the shot hit the herm of his used clothing which made him fall. If it hadn’t been the fall, my boss will have been shot in the head.”
