A 16-year-old in Beijing has been arrested on suspicion of murder and of committing a series of violent assaults.

The post states that Zhang violently assaulted a 17-year-old female student in the classroom of a school in Tongzhou District.

Zhang then assaulted two teachers – a 43-year-old male surnamed Dun and a 53-year-old male surnamed Gao – who tried to intervene.

All three victims were given medical treatment for non-life-threatening injuries. 

Zhang was restrained by police and arrested at the scene. 

The post goes on to state that Zhang is also suspected of murdering his neighbors – a married couple referred to as a 60-year-old male surnamed Jiao and a 55-year-old female surnamed Wang – on the evening of May 14, one day prior to the incident at the school. 

Furthermore, he is suspected of a violent assault on his mother – a 51-year-old female surnamed Cao – which left her in a coma on the morning of May 15 before the incident at the school. 

An investigation by the Tongzhou Public Security Bureau is ongoing.
