A 41-year-old man attacked fellow passengers on a Chengdu bus, and then continued his rampage in the city’s streets on Sunday night, ultimately killing four people and injuring eleven. The man, surnamed Li, was eventually shot and apprehended by police.
South China Morning Post covered the rampage and reports:
The driver ran after Li with a mop and other witnesses gave chase, grabbing stools and other makeshift weapons. Hearing the commotion, police arrived and fired warning shots. When Li continued to run away, police shot and wounded him. He was arrested, but the extent of his injuries were not disclosed.
Chengdu police said Li was originally from Jintang county and he may have launched the attacks because of financial problems that resulted from “family discord” and the stress of working away from his hometown.
