The woman then started attacking people.

Six people were sent to the hospital; however, two were pronounced dead at a later time.

Another six people suffered minor injuries while attempting to flee the scene, reported China Daily.

X user @xuelin830460 posted a video of the attack. The video briefly shows the young victims lying on the ground covered in blood.



NetEast News reported that the local area has issued an emergency notice calling on the public to actively donate blood to treat the children suffering from severe blood loss due to a blood shortage in the local blood banks.

Rumour that woman is associated with teacher in school

NetEast News also shared that there were rumours that the suspect was a nurse and a family member of a male teacher at the school.

The male teacher allegedly helped her apply for subsistence allowances, but the action was later reported to authorities.

This resulted in the suspect wanting to attack the child of the reporter.

These rumours have not been validated and the real motive has yet to be confirmed.

While the suspect has been apprehended, further investigations are ongoing.
