A hunter has reportedly met his untimely death at Femeso in the Adansi North District of the Ashanti Region in what could be described as a hunting expedition gone wrong.
The 26-year-old man was allegedly gunned down by his colleague who mistook him for a healthy grasscutter, MyNewsGH.com has reported.
According to the report sighted by YEN.com.gh, a resident of the village, Bright Bankas, has confirmed the incident.
Narrating how it happened, Bankas revealed that the deceased, Kwabenya Simon, went to the forest with the suspect, Yaw Brenya, in search of game.
Upon arrival in the forest, they took different routes with an agreement to meet at a point after their hunting.
Not long after, Brenya claims to have heard a strange noise and swiftly fired his gun.
He said he thought the sound was that of a grasscutter but when he rushed to the scene, he realised it was his friend who had been on the spot easing himself.
The suspect rushed Kwabenya to the Fumso Government Hospital but he was pronounced dead on arrival.
He has since been arrested and reported to be in police custody assisting with investigations.
According to the report, a co-tenant alerted the landlord of the house after noticing blood stains in the doorway of the deceased.
