Shooter Kills Four, Injures One in Nantou 草屯槍擊案4死1重傷 嫌犯中市落網

A gunman killed four and injured one at a Caotun biotech company on July 14. The lone survivor was the owner of the company, who is unconscious and the suspect has been apprehended.


A man wearing a black cap and mask flees the scene on a scooter. This is the gunman that opened fire at a Caotun biotech company. Police later found the stolen scooter abandoned in Taichung's Wufeng. The gunman shot and injured the owner of the company, shot and killed the owner's younger brother and daughter along with two other employees. The owner of the company, surnamed Lai, remains in critical condition.

Huang Yu-fen, Neurosurgeon, Taichung Veterans General Hospital: “He isn't out of danger yet. We will be monitoring his vital signs for the next few days and watching for infection and hydrocephalus.”

Taichung Veterans General Hospital says Lai tested positive for COVID-19 and his surgical team wore full protective suits during the procedure. The bullet caused a skull fracture and brain hemorrhage, and he is currently a "5" on the coma scale. Residents who live near the company say the front door is usually open when people are getting off work and the shooter took advantage of that.

Local Resident: “( Reporter: “Why was the front door open?”) People were getting off work at the time. ( Reporter: “Can anyone enter?”) No, of course not. Entry is strictly supervised.”

National Police Agency Director-General Huang Ming-chao, who has been at his post for just 15 days, says police are investigating. Nantou County Magistrate Lin Ming-chen says the shooter needs to be caught as soon as possible.

Lin Ming-chen, Nantou County Magistrate: “I'm sure the assailant will be caught very soon and brought to justice.”

Family members told the police a former employee surnamed Lee did not get along with a female section chief and Lee could very well be the shooter as he was familiar with the company's daily routine.

 

 

 


監視器拍下,男子帶著黑色鴨舌帽和口罩,騎機車離開現場。該男子是犯下南投草屯生技公司槍擊案的嫌犯,警方掌握他在犯案之後,騎著偷來的機車沿著中投公路,往台中霧峰逃逸,並將機車棄置在附近的鐵皮屋,但警方攻堅撲了空。這起槍擊案,造成賴姓負責人的弟弟和女兒,以及兩名員工當場斃命;賴姓負責人雖然經過搶救,還是有生命危險。

台中榮總神經外科醫師黃愉芬說:「情況還沒有脫離危險期,最近幾天的話,還是要再看一下,他目前的生命徵象,後續他也有可能,有一些,比如說感染症,或者是水腦症。」

台中榮總表示,賴姓負責人是陽性確診個案,全程穿著防護衣手術。子彈震碎頭骨造成腦出血,目前昏迷指數5,還沒脫離危險期。事發的生技公司拉起封鎖線,附近民眾表示,公司在下班的時間大門敞開,歹徒也看準時機犯案。

附近居民說:「(記者:為什麼昨天大門會打開?)就下班時間了,下班時間呀。(記者:一般人不能進去?)當然,一般門禁比較森嚴。」

才剛上任15天的警政署長黃明昭,在14日晚間到場坐鎮。由於是上任後首起重大刑案,他表示警方已經全力偵辦。南投縣長林明溱也對兇嫌表達嚴厲譴責, 要求盡速破案。

南投縣長林明溱:「相信最短的時間內,能夠將凶手繩之以法,我們絕不寬貸。」

家屬向警方表示, 一名離職的李姓員工和一位女性課長有嫌隙,加上熟悉公司的作息,推測犯案可能性很高。警方表示目前都還在追緝當中,動機也有待釐清。
