Beijing: Chinese police on Tuesday shot and wounded a man in downtown Beijing who resisted arrest after killing one person and injuring several others with a kitchen knife, the state news agency Xinhua reported.

It identified the suspect as a 29-year-old man from the northeastern province of Heilongjiang and said the motive for the knife attack on a street in Beijing`s Chaoyang district was under investigation.

The suspect and the victims were taken to hospital, it said. His injury was not critical, Xinhua said without giving further details.

China`s government has grown increasingly anxious about knife and other violent attacks, and has restricted sales of knives in areas it considers to be sensitive. ​
