At Namasa, in the Tain District of the Bono Region, a festival celebration has resulted in the shooting death of one person.
There are reportedly five other injured patients at the nearby Nsokor Hospital.
Lucy Acheampong, the Tain District Chief Executive (DCE) confirmed the occurrence.
She added that when gunshots were fired to scatter the gathering because locals were out enjoying themselves on the streets.
"With investigations ongoing, the police were called to transport the injured and deceased to the hospital.
According to Islamic tradition, the deceased should have been buried; however, because of the investigation, that has been postponed.
She said that in order to prevent any retaliation attacks, the affected families had been visited, and local security had been increased.
The District Security Council and other interested parties will convene to develop a roadmap to stop similar incidents from happening in the future, the DCE added.
One of the twelve districts in Ghana's Bono Region is called ain.   Prior to the western portion of the district being divided off to form Tain District on 12 November 2003 (effectively 17 February 2004), it was initially a part of the larger Wenchi District, which at the time was established on 10 March 1989.
As a result, the remaining portion has continued to be referred to as Wenchi District (which it was later upgraded to municipal district assembly status and has been renamed as Wenchi Municipal District on 29 February 2008).
On June 28, 2012, the district's northern portion was later divided off to form Banda District; the remaining portion has thus been kept as Tain District.
Nsawkaw serves as the capital of the district assembly, which is situated in the northeastern portion of Bono Region.
