A police officer whose name has been given only as Shaibu has allegedly shot a final year student of Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS) to death at Nyankrom near Shama in the Western Region.
The incident happened on Friday night.
According to reports, the student was together with four friends and were said to be on their way to a street jam.
But Shaibu mistook them for thieves.
He fired shots at them.
Lawrence Baidoo could not survive the shots and his body has been deposited at the Effia Nkwanta Hospital in the Region.
Two of the students, who were admitted at the St Benedict Hospital, are battling for their lives.
The rest are at large just like the officer.
Confirming the incident to 3news.com, ASP Olivia Adiku, the Western Regional Police spokesperson, said the police have begun investigations into the incident as details are awaited from the district command.
