A 64-year-old nursing home worker in Hunan province has been accused of bludgeoning to death three of the home’s elderly residents and injuring 15 other people, reportedly after getting into a fight with his boss over unpaid wages.
Lou Renchu attacked three elderly residents and staff members with a brick at the privately run Aixin Nursing Home in Shuafeng county at around 2:00 a.m. on Thursday, according to Sina News. Luo was detained by police on Saturday after he attempted to flee to a mountain.
The attack occurred after Luo got into an argument with the home’s owner, Fang Hongchun, about unpaid wages amounting to 40,000 yuan.
Among the injured are Fang’s mother and brother. Most of the injured suffered wounds to the head and six are in critical condition.
