BEIJING — Authorities say two people have been hacked to death and another nine injured by a man wielding a meat cleaver inside a Walmart store in China’s southern city of Shenzhen.

Police in the city’s Bao’an district said Monday in an online statement that a 30-year-old unemployed man named Jiang has been detained as a suspect. They say the motive for the attack was not immediately known.

The attack is said to have occurred at a Walmart store in Bao’an district, Shenzhen, a manufacturing hub in southern China.

According to accounts, the suspect started attacking shoppers on the second floor between 9pm and 10pm, reported local newspaper Southern Metropolis Daily.

One video clip online shows screaming shoppers running towards the exit of the store while another shows the blood-stained floor of the store after the rampage, Daily Mail reports.


A third clip appeared to show a man, in white top, running outside building with a cleaver in hand.

However, the police have not commented on whether or not he was the suspect.

Victims were immediately sent to the Hengshen Hospital and Bao’an Central Hospital for treatment, the report said.

It also stated that officials from the local authority arrived at the scene shortly afterwards to direct the rescue operation.

The Shenzhen Public Security Bureau confirmed that two people had been killed and nine others had been injured as the result of the assault.

Further police investigation is underway.

Walmart, headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas, has been operating in China for more than 20 years.

It had 439 stores in 189 Chinese cities by the end of 2016.

Firearms are largely unobtainable for ordinary Chinese, and such attacks are more often carried out with knives or homemade explosives. Sales of knives have faced stricter regulations following high-profile attacks, some of which have targeted schools.

Perpetrators of most past attacks have been described as being mentally ill or bearing grudges against society.


God Bless.
