No fewer than six people were killed by stabbing and one was injured in an attack at a kindergarten in South China’s Guangdong province on Monday.
The spokeswoman for the city government said, “The victims include one teacher, two parents, and three students.”
“One suspect has been taken into custody, she added, noting that a police investigation was ongoing.
Local police in a statement said, “The suspect was a 25-year-old male surnamed Wu.”
The incident reportedly happened around 7:40 am (23:40 GMT on Sunday), the state backed China News report.
There have been a lot of stabbings recently despite China’s tight laws against its people carrying firearms, although there was also one incident where the attacker used a chemical spray to injure a classroom of 50 children.
