BEIJING – In a rare case of gun violence in China, a man fatally shot five people and beat a sixth to death, including some of his factory colleagues and a soldier, police said today.
The killing spree started when the man, identified as having the surname Fan, beat a colleague to death over an economic dispute Saturday at a Shanghai chemical factory, Shanghai police said. Police said Fan, 62, then took a hunting rifle, asked a driver to take him to another district and shot him on the way. After killing the driver, Fan drove the vehicle and killed a soldier who was guarding the entrance to a barracks, police said. He also took the soldier’s gun.
Fan returned to the factory and fatally shot three more people with his rifle, including a manager. Police said they captured him in the factory.
