“Ghanaian Man in the US Takes Own Life After Shooting Wife in Tragic Incident”

In Columbus, Ohio, a tragic incident unfolded when a Ghanaian man took his own life after shooting his wife, leaving her critically wounded. The incident, initially a domestic violence dispute, has shocked the neighbors, leaving them in disbelief, as reported by Fox 28.

Michael Montgomery, a next-door neighbor, expressed his shock, mentioning that the couple had always been pleasant, and there were no apparent signs of problems between them. The news came as a “very, very shocking” revelation to him.

The incident occurred around 10:36 p.m. when Columbus police responded to a domestic violence report in the 4800 block of Glendon Road. However, as officers were en route, the situation escalated, resulting in a shooting.

Upon arrival, the police discovered that Kwabena Michael Amoako, 49 years old, had tragically lost his life. His wife, Yaa Gyamfua, 50 years old, had sustained gunshot wounds and was rushed to Riverside Methodist Hospital in critical condition.

According to Montgomery, he learned about the gunfire when the couple’s three young sons knocked on his door seeking help. The 16-year-old son informed him that they heard an argument, followed by two gunshots. In fear, they ran out of the house and sought assistance from their neighbor.

Montgomery expressed regret, wishing he could have done something to prevent the tragedy. He emphasized that there were no apparent signs of violence within the family, making the incident even more shocking.

The couple had been residing in the neighborhood for nearly a decade and were actively involved in the Ghanaian community in Columbus.

Preliminary investigations by the police indicate that Amoako shot his wife before taking his own life. Due to the severity of the woman’s injuries, the Columbus Police Homicide Unit has taken over the investigation.
