CHINA: MAN WHO KILLED 6 PEOPLE DURING A SHOOTING SPREE IN SHANGHAI EXECUTED
June 14, 2016: A man who killed six people and injured four others with guns and an iron pipe in Shanghai three years ago has been executed, a local court said.
Fan Jieming, 65, was sentenced to death by Shanghai No. 2 Intermediate People's Court for murder, robbery, and forcible seizure, illegal purchase and possession of guns last July.
According to the court, Fan had a dispute at a chemical factory in the city's Baoshan District on June 22, 2013, before beating a colleague to death there with an iron pipe.
He then took a hunting rifle from his dormitory and asked a driver to take him to another district. He killed the driver on the way and took the vehicle.
At a nearby military barracks Fan killed a guard and took his gun. He then returned to the plant and shot dead another three people.
Fan also seriously injured three people and slightly injured another. He was captured by police the same day and put on trial in January, 2014. (Source: Xinhua, June 15, 2016)
