One person has been confirmed dead after sustaining a gunshot wound following a confrontation between residents of Adwumakaase-Kese in the Afigya Kwabre South District of the Ashanti Region and the police, Thursday morning.
There was disagreement between the police and the residents when the youth demanded the reasons for the arrest of one of their colleagues.
The police in the ensuing confrontation allegedly shot into the crowd wounding two residents.

Calm returned after the Chief of Adwumakaase-Kese community, Nana Asenso Kuffour Ababio, spoke to the residents.
But with confirmation of the death of one of the victims Friday morning, residents of Adwumakaase-Kese launched a scathing attack on the residents of Bomfa.
A police officer has been beaten and a patrol vehicle destroyed.
A team of armed police and military have currently been deployed in the two communities to ensure law and order.
