US-based Ghanaian singer, Britney Boateng shot dead By Sister-In-Law

According to the Columbus Division of Police, the 22-year-old Ghanaian singer, Britney Boateng was fatally shot during an argument with sister inlaw Tyona Dodson who has now been arrested.

However, it is unclear what sparked the argument between Britney and Tyona.

A report by states that “officers were called to the 400 block of South Weyant Avenue, just north of East Main Street, around 1 a.m. Police found Britney Boateng with a gunshot wound, who was pronounced dead at 1:12 a.m”.

The Columbus Ohio Police have accordingly issued a statement about Britney’s death.

The statement shared on twitter reads: “detectives have arrested a 41-year-old woman for the deadly shooting that occurred overnight on S. Weyant Ave”.

The police said “Tyona Dodson is charged with murder in the death of Britney Boateng. Investigators have determined an argument between both women led to the fatal shooting,”

Ricky McElroy, a supervisor at the Buckeye Ranch who produced music for Boateng, said “she was just a sweet soul. Her talent was unbelievable, but just her care for people — her love for people — was amazing.”

He recalled Boateng’s memorable performance of “Hero,” by Mariah Carey, at the Glenwood Recreation Center in front of Columbus Mayor Andrew J. Ginther in 2016.

“Oh Britney, I can’t even find the words. This heart of mine is busted wide open and I am left in pieces,” wrote Nancy de Leon, an English and Humanities teacher at Columbus City Schools’ Fort Hayes Arts and Academic High School, where Boateng was an alumna.
