So, things just exacerbated, did it now??? From the Front Page Sections, translated…
A man, Chang rode on his motorcycle with his daughter on the back, passed through the Airport check station in Taichung, and because he was pulled over for not wearing his helmet, he’d gotten into a physical altercation with the officer on duty, Kang, they got into a fist fight, Kang’s gun fell to the ground, and, Chang took it from the ground, and fired off twelve shots uncontrollably, and the flying bullets grazed a passerby’s buttocks, in the end, Chang was shot to death by the airport security officer who came to backup the calls; the young child who bore witness to her father going crazy, was shaken up really badly, and she’d been placed into foster care by the social workers now.
The very FIRST airport shooting occurred at two thirty yesterday afternoon, Chang (age 45), rode his ten-year-old daughter across the flight stations in Taichung, mumbled on how he was taking her by flight, and because he wasn’t wearing a helmet when he rode his motorcycle, and was doubleparked on the streets, the airport security officer, Kang came to check, and Chang pulled his child onto the freeways, Kang tried to stop him, and, Chang swung at him, and hit his nose.
The two men got into a fist fight, and, as the officer was about to pull the stick, he was pushed to the ground, then, kicked continuously, and, as the officer was pulling the gun out, it accidentally got out of his hands, and Chang took the gun, closed his eyes, lowered his head, and started firing off the shots like crazy.
“Bang-Bang-Bang!”, the gunshots went off, a woman, He, who just got off the flight from Hong Kong, was just walking out of the airport, was shot in the buttocks, she’d fallen over and started screaming in pain, and the bullets had passed through the cars parked by the freeways, and into the buildings of the airport too. The counter clerk lady started screaming too, the passengers started running all over the places like crazy, and, there was blood, everywhere, outside.
“It’s like a gunfight from the movies, happening, right in front of my eyes”, a passenger who was still shell-shocked told, back then, he was using his cell phone, he saw officers running outside, and saw how Chang had the gun in his right hand, and, the officers from the opposite side of the street could do nothing, then, he’d heard continuous shots; two officers fired off at Chang, and, Chang fell to the ground.
The hospitals said, that before Chang arrived, he was already dead, that there were four entry wounds, on the upper side of his abdomen, the left side of his chest, the right of his head, and at his abdomen, that although they’d trached him immediately, but, at three-thirty in the afternoon, he was, pronounced dead.
There was a one centimeter through-and-through wound on He’s buttocks, she was sent into emergency operation, He’s mother said, that right after her daughter got off her flight, she’d gotten caught, in the crossfires, but gladly, the female security guard, Kang took her into the terminal, and gave her emergency treatments, that it’s bad enough that this happened, that neither one of them blamed anybody; the terminator police officer, Kang was shot on his wrist, abrasions on his knees, and, his nose was punched.
The police department head, Huang reported, that Chang had used up all of his twelve bullets inside the casings, and one of the bullets jammed, and the two officers who were called to the backup had shot Chang fourteen times.
He said, that the officer who was shot, Kang had been an officer for about twenty years, that six month ago, he’d transferred to Kaohsiung from Taichung, and, last month because he was able to catch a smuggler, he was commended on; and this time, because he’d tried to stop Chang, and was attacked, wanted to use the gun, but it felt to the ground, that it wasn’t Officer Kang’s fault.
Chang’s ex-wife and younger sister went to the morgue to identify him, Chang’s ex-wife was very stable, without a word; the younger sister said, that a little over two months ago when she’d talked to him on the phones, she didn’t know that he was divorced.
And the young girl, at the time the gun fight was occurring, ducked down by her father’s motorcycle, she witnessed her father getting shot and killed, she was dumbfounded. The child said, that back then, her father was on the way to see a friend but couldn’t get in touch with the friend, said that he’s going to take her on the airplanes, she didn’t know, that her father was going to shoot people, she’d hid behind the motorcycle, closed her eyes through the entire thing, didn’t know her father was dead, just kept saying, “I’m so scared.”
So, this man just started shooting, and, something MUST have been going on, and, him getting pulled over was just that last domino that fell, causing everything ELSE to crumble down, and him to crack.
