The assassin, instead of running away, wiped his hands with some newspaper and asked passers-by to call police, saying that he didn’t bring a phone with him. He was later detained by police.

The assailant Hao Jianzong, born in the 1960’s, is a motorcycle taxi driver. He claimed to have been seeking the victim for six years for the revenge, which was caused by demolition issues years ago.

The victim surnamed Cao is an officer in the nearby Demolition and Placement Office. In the morning of May 25, when he just stepped off a bus, Hao rushed directly toward him and attacked him with a knife and an axe.

Witnesses said that owner of a shop by the roadside and a passer-by had tried hard to dissuade Hao out of the attack, but he wouldn’t listen.

Afterward, Hao didn’t leave, but signed with emotion: “I’m going West.*”

Investigation is underway.

*“Go West (上西天)” is a Buddhist term originally meant going to the paradise, now it is used as a euphemism for death.
