(TheRedAlertNews.com) – WARNING: The video below shows the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo in graphic detail. Please do not watch the video if you believe this will upset you.
Former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo was assassinated earlier today by a gunman with a homemade gun.
As you’ll witness in the video below, the gunman seemingly missed when he fired the first shot. Tragically, the second shot did hit Shinzo.
According to The Washington Post:
“Police arrested a suspect, a 41-year-old man from Nara named Tetsuya Yamagami, and seized a gun. Yamagami was a member of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force for three years, defense officials told Japanese media.
“Footage of the event showed that while Abe was giving a speech, one gunshot was fired from behind him, creating a plume of smoke. He turned around and looked over his left shoulder and then a second shot was fired, with another plume of smoke. Abe fell forward to the ground and the gunman was apprehended.”
Besides heroic efforts to save his life by first responders and medical personnel, Shinzo died.
Here is the video. Again, please be warned that the video shows the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo in graphic detail. Please do not watch the video if you believe this will upset you.
