Man With Machine Gun Storms Into Courtroom, Kills Three Judges
June 1, 2010
The man, named by officials as Zhu Jun, was a 46-year-old security head at the local post office.
He was reportedly angry that he had divorced his wife a few years before, but had not gotten what he thought was a fair share of their possessions in the split.
Jun walked into the court just before 10 AM local time, while a group of judges were deliberating on a case.
He began to shoot, killing three judges immediately, and injuring three others.
He then used one of two other weapons to shoot himself, dying instantly.
This is the latest in a string of violent attacks that have shocked the world, from a country that has a surprisingly low violent crime rate for a population of such massive proportions.
In the last year, dozens of people (mostly children between the ages of four and nine) have been hurt in a series of knife attacks on schools, leaving 17 dead.
