An individual who was stopped by police for drink driving has stabbed dead three police officers in Jiangxi province, South China. 

The incident occurred during the evening of February 17 in Shangli county, Pingxiang city, around 250 kilometers west of provincial capital Nanchang. 

The three officers – named on the Pingxiang Press Release WeChat Official Account as He Mingshu, Li Bing and Li Rongqiang – stopped an individual surnamed Huang and found he was driving without a driver’s license. Moreover, Huang was found to be intoxicated while behind the wheel. 

Huang then attacked the three officers with a knife, following which the officers were rushed to hospital with serious injuries. All three later died from their injuries while in hospital.

News stories related to drink drivers are common in Chinese media. However, it is rare for such incidents to escalate in the way the aforementioned case did so.
