The Shanghai government said the suspect is a 62-year-old man, surnamed Fan.

He killed one of his colleagues at around 5 pm on Saturday over an economic dispute.

He then took out his hunting rifle hidden in his dormitory and asked a driver to give him a ride to another district. He gunned down the driver on the way.

He drove the vehicle to an army camp and killed a guard at the gate and grabbed his gun.

After that, he returned to the plant and killed another three people.

Details of the economic dispute and how the suspect got the hunting rifle are still unknown, as further investigation is still underway.
