A man who allegedly stabbed five people before plowing into a group of nine others in a suburban district of Beijing on Sunday was found dead on Monday, local media reported.

The suspect, Wang Shanwen, committed suicide, Beijing News quoted an insider as saying on Monday afternoon just three hours after Beijing police put up a reward on social media offering 200,000 yuan ($29,600) for key information.

The 38-year-old, who is originally from Heilongjiang province, is said to have injured a group of five people with scissors in Miyun district before fleeing in a van, killing one person and injuring eight, at about 3 pm on Sunday, police said.

The injured were treated at a hospital.
