According to a Xin'an Evening News reporter, the alleged attacker had previously been receiving treatment at the hospital but had been unable to pay medical bills, and so the hospital has suspended the supply of drugs. He is said to have left and then returned  with a kitchen knife and attacked the nursing station in the urology department. The local police rushed to the scene after receiving the alarm and quickly arrested the suspect. According to reports, Ms Dai Moumou, a 36-year-old urology sister was killed after being stabbed in the neck.
