Two killed, nine injured in Shenzhen supermarket knife attack

At least two people were killed and nine others injured in a knife attack at a Walmart supermarket in Shenzhen's Baoan district on Sunday night, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports. The motive was not immediately known.

According to the Southern Metropolis Daily, police arrested a 30-year-old suspect, surnamed Jiang, from Chongqing.

Xinhua said the man was now unemployed but had left his home of Chongqing in southwest China in 2014 to become a migrant worker.

Shenzhen police said that Jiang had answered questions with a clear mind and that they were investigating the crime as well as Jiang's mental state.

China's tight control of firearms is often cited as one reason for the high prevalence of knife attacks in particular.
