Chinese serial killer shot dead
Beijing: A fugitive gunman who is suspected of killing nine in armed robberies since 2004 was shot dead Tuesday in southwest China`s Chongqing area, police said.
Zhou, described as "ruthless and highly dangerous" by China`s authorities, has become infamous for robbing people withdrawing money from banks and repeatedly dodging police manhunts, reported Xinhua.
Officials said the wanted suspect shot nine people dead and injured five over the past eight years. The latest victim was a Chongqing police officer who was trying to stop and question Zhou before he was shot over the weekend.
