The bustling city of Taipei was rocked by a shocking incident recently when a 17-year-old boy went on a shooting rampage in a store where he had previously worked. The incident took place at around 8 a.m. on the 20th, and caused locals to flee in panic as the boy fired over 60 rounds from a modified machine gun before escaping in a taxi.
Fortunately, there were no casualties reported, and the young man turned himself in to the authorities about 50 minutes later. According to local media reports, the suspect claimed that he had been the victim of bullying by his former boss and colleagues, leading to the impulsive act of violence. However, the police suspect that the shooting was premeditated, and have seized the weapon and two additional ammunition clips as part of their investigation.
This is not the only recent incident of gun violence in Taiwan. Just the day before, two men were involved in a shooting during an argument over money in Taipei. The police have stressed that such actions cannot be tolerated and are conducting a thorough investigation to determine any possible connections between the two cases.
As the authorities work to bring those responsible to justice and prevent further acts of violence, residents and visitors alike are left reeling from the shock of these disturbing events. The incident highlights the need for measures to prevent gun violence and protect citizens from such incidents. The safety of the public should always be a top priority, and it is important that people work together to prevent further tragedies from occurring.
