Local police in central China’s Jiangxin province are offering a reward of 200,000 RMB, that’s almost 30,000 US Dollars, for information leading to the capture of a man wanted for the killing of a police officer, and the wounding of two neighbors.
The homicide happened in Yongxiu County, at about 11am on Saturday, when police officer Huang Fugui was walking down the street, and was suddenly attacked by the suspect who stabbed him to death.
According to witnesses, the suspect then returned home, where he stabbed two of his neighbors, with whom he had had disputes in the past.
The two victims were later taken to a hospital and are reportedly still in a critical condition.
40 year old suspect Xiong Yunshi has already been jailed twice for intentional injury and theft.
The investigation continues.
