A 17-year-old teenager was killed at an internet cafe in Dongguan, Guangdong province when one of his peers snuck up from behind him and slashed his throat with a knife.
The victim, Guo Xianghu, had reportedly gotten into a dispute with the suspect, surnamed Lei, in a KTV bar just below the web cafe.
Lei ran to a department store to purchase two knives before entering the internet cafe, where Guo had been using a computer. Surveillance footage shows as the suspect, dressed in a white shirt and black pants, walked up to an unsuspecting Guo with a knife behind his back.
Lei grabbed the victim with his left hand and quickly cut his throat with his right hand. He then pushed the teen aside and fled. Guo’s friends got up and chased behind Lei as the victim was seen stumbling from his chair with his hand to his throat, blood spilling on his shirt.
“The victim’s friends didn’t succeed in chasing the suspect, but the police came quickly,” staff from a neighborhood store told reporters. “The boy lost too much blood and [rescuers] couldn’t help.”
