The lead character in the drama you see unfolding in the photos above is a man suspected of killing his 71-year-old mother-in-law and his 13-year-old nephew on March 30 in Shenyang, Liaoning Province. For good measure, he allegedly also killed a “bicycle caretaker” yesterday, the same day police cornered him in a room on the eighth floor of a hospital. His wife somehow tipped police off regarding his whereabouts (we don’t know why he was in the hospital).
We like how news.com.au describes what happened next:
After a two-hour standoff in which the man threatened to jump from a window, police lost patience and asked firefighters to hose him off.
