A State forensic pathologist has told a coroner that Frank Mugala, the 13-year-old boy who was allegedly shot dead by police in February last year in Lusaka, died of a gunshot wound.
Adam Mucheleng’anga, a physician who undertook an autopsy on Frank, told a coroner on Friday that the juvenile’s death was a homicide after a gunshot whose bullet hit an intermediate object.
He was testifying in a case the coroner, Sanford Ngobola, is hearing an inquest into the death of Frank, a Grade Eight pupil of Chazanga Township.
The Chazanga Primary School learner died on February 13 last year after allegedly being shot by the police.
