24-year-old Ghanaian shoots two family members in US during 13-hour standoff with police

In the US state of Massachusetts, Worcester police have detained a 24-year-old man for shooting two of his family members. The incident happened on Friday, July 7, 2023, at around 8:30 in the morning, and it took the Worcester Police Department around 13 hours to ultimately make the culprit into custody. “On July 7, 2023, at around 8:38 AM, Worcester Police officers were called to a Colby Avenue house for a domestic dispute in which a man had shot two members of his family, but both had fled the scene before police arrived. When the police arrived, they spoke with a family member present. The male suspect, age 24, was spotted by the police outside the house. He seemed like he was packing a weapon. He was told to get down by officers. He first complied, but then he leaped to his feet, opened fire on the policemen, and fled into the house,” according to the police. Police Hostage Negotiation Team, SWAT Team, K9 Unit, drone operators, and a mobile crisis mental health clinician were all dispatched to the area and made sure that the hostages had successfully exited the residence and were leaving the suspect alone. “Officers tried to convince the male to leave the house for around thirteen hours. While SWAT forces kept the perimeter under control, hostage negotiators made repeated attempts to make contact and the drone captured useful aerial footage. Firefighters and paramedics from Worcester were available. Throughout the confrontation, the guy repeatedly discharged his handgun at the officers, who responded by opening fire. Finally, about 9:30 PM, the male moved out of the back of the house and was apprehended with the help of the K9. Paramedics attended to his medical needs before placing him under arrest and taking him to the hospital, according to the statement. The perpetrator and the two victims were both injured and received medical attention at a hospital, according to the police. All of them are anticipated to live. A Ghanaian blogger in Worcester named Governor Studios claims that the suspect is a former student of Wenchi Senior High School who now resides in Worcester with his family. His mother and sister were his victims, according to Governor Studios. It has not yet been determined what motivated or precipitated his action. However, according to authorities, the offender will be arraigned in court on Monday, July 10, 2023, and is expected to face “many serious charges” as a result of the crime.
