Four dead in attack on China old people’s home: state media

Posted by Author on September 10, 2010

AFP, Sep. 10, 2010 –

BEIJING — Four people died and two others were injured in an attack at an old people’s home in northeastern China on Friday which left the building on fire, a city official said.

The attack took place in the city of Yichun in Heilongjiang province, a city district official said.

Police detained a 50-year-old resident of the home, Zhou Zhiyi, in connection with the incident, Xinhua state news agency reported, quoting a statement from the provincial emergency response office.

Zhou told the authorities that other residents at the home — which housed 21 people — had treated him badly and not repaid him money they owed him, Xinhua said, citing the statement.

The incident was the latest in a series of recent killing sprees in China that some experts have linked to stress or mental illnesses as society becomes more fast-paced and socialist support systems wither.

Several people have attacked children and teachers at schools in particularly gruesome crimes that have shocked the nation.

At least six major attacks at schools have taken place since March, killing 21 people — including 18 children — and injuring more than 80.

In August, a Chinese court sentenced to death a man who murdered his girlfriend and four other people in a drunken fit of rage on New Year’s Eve last year, state media reported.
