A man under interrogation at a police station for violence stabbed a woman witness sitting next to him, police said Sunday. The woman died in an ambulance on route to hospital from blood loss.
According to Gyeongsan police, the man identified as Kim, 48, was taken to a police station at 1 p.m. for assaulting others at a bar. The bar's owner ㅡ the victim, a woman aged 52 ㅡ was also present at the station as a witness.
Officers at the scene said Kim abruptly pulled out a knife from his backpack and stabbed her in the chest and sides several times. A police officer shot him twice.
The man was injured in his right calf and taken to hospital. ``He is not in critical condition,'' police said.
``It was too sudden to block him,'' an officer said. ``The man will be indicted on homicide charges.''
