HWASEONG, Korea, Feb. 27 (Korea Bizwire) — Four people were dead and another injured Friday after a shooting rampage in this city south of Seoul, authorities said.
Police said they received a phone call around 9:30 a.m., saying the caller’s relative had shot a gun in a two-story residence in the central Hwaseong district of Namyang.
Inside were the bodies of a couple who appeared to be married, the head of a local police substation and another man of unknown identity, authorities said, adding an air rifle seems to have been used.
The police officer was confirmed dead, but the identities of the other four victims were not immediately known.
The incident comes two days after a gunman killed three people in the central city of Sejong before turning the gun on himself.
