A Ghanaian female singer based in the United States of America, Britney Boateng, has been reportedly shot dead by her sister-in-law.

Information gathered by GhanaWeb from multiple international online platforms indicates that there was an argument between the singer and her sister-in-law, 41-year-old Tyona Dodson.

The incident, which took place in East Columbus on Friday, November 18, 2022, ended the life of 22-year-old Britney Boateng, pronounced dead at 1:12 a.m., the Columbus Division of Police said.
