Kwabena Martin, according to some residents, shot his father, Nana Sekyere, and four family members before later turning the gun on himself.

He had been discharged from a psychiatric hospital Friday night.

Sampa District Police Commander, DSP William Gyamfi confirmed the incident to Joy News saying the police had information about the incident around 7:30pm Friday.

He said the man, believed to be about 35 years, “shot about five people. Two are in critical condition as they have been referred to the Sunyani Regional Hospital. Four people, including the attacker are dead.”

“This man happens to be a psychiatric patient and even he was discharged from the Sampa government hospital yesterday evening.

We are yet to delve deep into the matter and see if there could be any other cause…,” DSP Gyamfi added.
