The Ashanti Region Police Command has confirmed the death of the two persons involved in road rage at Ayeduase near Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
According to the Police PRO in Kumasi, Godwin Ahianyo, Kwame Amoah, 52, was the first to die at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital hours after he was shot three times in the stomach.
The suspect, Sampson Zabanga, 31, was also confirmed dead a few hours later.
Mr Zabanga shot Mr Amoah after he confronted him for parking wrongly.
The incident took place in front of the Access Bank at Ayeduase gate, KNUST, on Tuesday.
According to eyewitnesses, Mr Zabanga had exchanged words with another driver after they both accused each other of reckless driving.
The victim, Mr Amoah and others had stepped in to make peace between the two drivers and some words of Mr Amoah did not go down well with Mr Zabanga as he was already angry due to a previous argument.
Mr Zabanga who was infuriated, according to police, brought out a gun and shot Mr Amoah three times in the stomach.
A mob was restrained from drawing closer as the suspect kept firing shots.
Mr Zabanga is said to have shot himself in the head, leading to his death in the hospital later.
