Hunan police have just captured and arrested 34-year-old Liu Aibing for setting 6 homes on fire, killing 12 in a gun rampage, and leaving two critically injured. Liu’s own father is among the deceased victims. From People’s Daily Online [CN], translated by CDT:

On December 12th, a serious homicide occurred around 4AM in Yinshanpai village (located in Gaoming township, Anhua County, Yiyang City), leaving 6 wooden homes torched, 12 people dead, and 2 seriously injured. Those seriously injured have already been sent to a local hospital for treatment. On December 13th, around 6:50AM, the suspect Liu Aibing was arrested by Public Security Bureau officers.

More details, via AFP:

Liu, a migrant worker, had recently returned from southern China’s Guangdong province where he had sought employment, the Hongwang report said. He has a history of mental illness, it added.

Among the dead were Liu’s father and several close relatives, it said.

The Hunan killings are the latest family-related murders in China in recent weeks.

Earlier this month, police in southwest China captured a man suspected of murdering his parents and four other relatives after he escaped from a mental hospital in Yunnan province.

In late November, police in the southern Hainan province captured a man suspected of hacking to death his parents, wife, sons and sister in Beijing.
