Chinese suspect found murdering compatriot in central Vietnam

Thursday, December 31, 2015, 10:39 GMT+7

Police in the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang have identified Feng Long Chun, a Chinese man, as the suspect who shot dead another Chinese in the city in November.

The conclusion was announced at a press conference hosted by leaders of the Da Nang Department of Police on Wednesday.

Police officers had spent over a month carrying out an investigation and concluded that Feng, a 27-year-old from the Chinese province of Guangxi, was responsible for the murder of his compatriot, Li Muzi, 31, in the city on November 26, said Colonel Nguyen Duc Dung from the police department.

The motive was initially said to arise from their conflict in business, which was the sale of SIM cards to those Chinese traveling to Vietnam, according to Col. Dung.

Feng blamed Li for hurting his business, resulting in the shutdown of his service by Chinese authorities in September.

The suspect came to Thailand in November to purchase a gun, then traveling to Cambodia before entering Vietnam, the officer said.

Col. Dung stated that Feng had thoroughly planned his murder and covered his tracks by not staying at hotels and changing his vehicles several times to prevent police from hunting him down.

On December 25, officers found Feng responsible so they encouraged him to turn himself in, before nabbing the suspect in the southern province of Tay Ninh on December 27.

At around 7:00 am on November 26, Li was taking his motorcycle outside when he was shot by Feng in his abdomen, causing him to collapse on the ground in front of his residence in Son Tra District, Da Nang.

The victim was immediately taken to the Da Nang General Hospital but could not survive due to his serious injury.

Police arrived at the scene shortly after being notified to make a report of the case, carrying out an investigation and gathering statements from local residents.

Investigators found a two-centimeter-long white cartridge at the scene, one meter from the victim’s motorbike, according to initial reports.

Li was then living with his Vietnamese wife, 24-year-old Nguyen Thi Quynh Nga, and their daughter in the city.
