A Chinese gambler cut the throat of an alleged loanshark after hiding in the back seat of his car and then calmly waited smoking a cigarette after calling the police and confessing what he had done.
Gambler He Laoliu, 33, borrowed a large sum of money from Zhang Chung, 38, and then after he was unable to pay it, after losing the lot gambling, claimed he had been given several visits by Zhang's henchmen.
After his wife left and took his children with him, he decided to get revenge and although Zhang was almost always surrounded by bodyguards, he had been alone when he climbed into his car to drive home. Hidden in the back however was He Laoliu, who sliced the loan shark's throat as the car came to a stop in heavy traffic.
He then climbed out and called police before lighting a cigarette and shouting at the people nearby that they should avoid both gambling and loan sharks.
Jian Lu told local TV: "He was saying that the dead man was a crook who had ruined his life and destroyed his family with his extortionate rates of interest. He was telling everyone to avoid gambling and dirty money borrowed from criminals."
Police who turned up to arrest the man after the killing in Laifeng County, in China's Hubei province, could only confirm the death of Zhang and transported his blood drenched body to the local morgue.
Netizens on China’s popular micro-blogging website Weibo were taken aback by the gruesome images, especially because bystanders – including children – were able to watch the incident unfold first hand.
Others have questioned He Laoliu’s psyche. "Surely there must be something wrong with him," one said. "How can he be so calm after murdering someone in cold blood?"
Local police are continuing to investigate the incident.
