Terror at Court in China

In central China, a gunman shot three judges to death and wounded three other people before taking his own life.

An Associated Press article said the 46-year-old gunman was described by the official Xinhua News Agency as bearing a grudge against the court over a ruling in a marital property division dispute three years ago. He and his wife were getting a divorce then.

The judges who were killed had not been involved in the attacker’s case. Xinhua identified the attacker as Zhu Jun, a head of security at the Lingling district post office in Yongzhou in Hunan province. A small automatic handgun was used in the attacks.
