An American citizen from Ghana, Frederick Owusu Sakyi, 33, has been arrested for killing his ex-wife. He lives in Maryland, USA.
In a statement seen by MyNewsGh.com, the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) said that the suspect and the deceased, whose name has been hidden, were reportedly getting a divorce.
Officials sent security to the Urbana Giant at 3530 Sugarloaf Parkway around 11:11 p.m. on Saturday, January 6, 2024, after hearing reports of a shooting.
When police arrived, they found one person dead and the suspect running away.
Detectives from the homicide unit later found Frederick Owusu Sakyi, 33, of Walkersville, Maryland, and arrested him without any problems.
When deputies quickly searched his car, they saw an assault rifle in the back seat and a handgun in the front seat.
We will not share the name of the person who died on social media out of respect for their family. But deputies from the FCSO told all of the next of kin,” a statement said.
According to the first investigation, Sakyi is the victim’s estranged husband, and the two are currently getting a divorce. Sakyi has also been the subject of protective orders and stalking in the past. To book Sakyi into the Frederick County Adult Detention Center, deputies took him there.
On the other hand, the Urbana shopping center is now open again and is where the Giant is located.
