Homemade Gun Allegedly Used to Assassinate Shinzo Abe
Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated at a small political rally. While giving his speech, a 41-year-old man with a “personal grudge” shot Abe twice in the back. The suspected assassin was taken down by Abe's security detail, apparently dropping his homemade double-barrelled gun. The 67-year-old man was pronounced dead after five hours of surgery. He was Japan's longest-ruling prime minister from 2012 to 2020.
