China Knife Rampage That Arose From Dispute Leaves Six Dead

A street vendor who got in a dispute with another man in southern China went on a rampage that killed five people, according to police.

The man hacked and killed the other vendor, and then hacked at four people as he ran away, the Changsha police bureau said on its official microblog. Two passers-by died at the scene and two died of their wounds at a hospital. Police shot and killed the man as they pursued him, the police bureau said.

“It started as a fight between one man and another in the same shop,” Lu Yewen, who operates a clinic nearby, said of the incident by phone. “He hacked the other guy and then he started stabbing anyone he saw.”

Lu said the vendor sold flat bread near the Shahuqiao market in Changsha. People fled the market in panic as the attack unfolded, according to Zhang Mingxiang, the 57-year-old owner of a nearby tofu shop.

“I was so scared -- my heart is still pounding,” Zhang said by phone.

A photograph posted online that purported to show the aftermath of the attack showed two bodies on the ground with crowds of people looking on and taking pictures.
