Hunter Shot Dead Farmer in Grand Gedeh

A hunting expedition turned tragic on Monday when a 25-year-old hunter Harrison Taye, shot a farmer dead in Duogee Town, Grand Gedeh County. Suspect Taye told the New Dawn he mistakenly saw the victim Hexiphus Pajebo, like a red deer when he discharged his single barrel round, instantly killing him.

However, he said regrettably after firing the gun, he realized he has killed a human being. Police in Grand Gedeh County have launched an investigation into the incident, while defendant Taye is being held for recklessly taking the life of another person in violation Section 14.23 of the new penal code of Liberia, pending trial.
