Shock gripped residents of Sefwi Bekwai Atwima in the Western region, after a 12-year-old boy reportedly killed his 13-year-old bosom friend at about 9 am on Monday, May 6, 2012.

The juvenile suspect (name withheld) allegedly killed Felix K. Baah using a single-barreled gun belonging to his father, who was said to be away from home during the incident.


Several phone calls to the Police inspector said to be investigating the case to corroborate the incident on Tuesday were not answered.

However, a resident of the community who was at the scene told the Daily Guide that the suspect had aimed the gun at a rodent on a tree but it changed its direction when he fired it, killing his 13-year-old friend instead.

The source said the bullet hit the deceased in the head sending him to the ground instantly.

According to the eyewitness, both the suspect and deceased lived on the outskirts of the community and were pupils of a preparatory School at Sefwi Bekwai.

The body of Felix, according to reports, had since been deposited at the Bibiani Government Hospital for autopsy while the suspect was in the grips of the Police assisting in investigations.
