A policeman is being treated for gunshot wounds at the Upper East Regional Hospital in Bolgatanga after an unknown gunman opened fire on him and his colleague officer at Atulbabisi Monday night.

The second wounded officer was treated and discharged from the same hospital.

Confirming the incident to Class News, the regional police commander, DCOP Osei Kwasi Ampofo-Duku said while on duty, the attention of the officers was drawn to an unusual noise around their duty post and when they were on their way to investigate the noise, an assailant shot at them.

He said: “They heard an unusual noise like some people were throwing stones but they did not know those who were involved, so, a military officer and the two policemen went to see what was happening, and, as they were on their way there, an unknown assailant shot at them. The two policemen sustained injuries – one serious, one minor. The minor one was treated and discharged, the one who sustained serious injuries is still on admission.”

DCOP Ampofo-Duku noted that his command has commenced investigations into the shooting incident.
