n a tragic reminder of the importance of being a thoughtful and conscientious roommate, one man stabbed another to death recently inside their workers’ dorm room in the Guangdong city of Zhongshan.
On the night of January 12th, local police received a call about an injured person at a company dormitory in the city’s Huoju Development Zone. After rushing to the scene, they arrested a 31-year-old man surnamed Chen while a 29-year-old man surnamed Li was rushed to hospital in serious condition. He died at the hospital later that night.
According to a police notice posted online, after investigation, it was determined that Chen and Li came into conflict over that contentious issue of music volume, resulting in Chen picking up a knife and stabbing his roommate.
Photos from police show the alleged murder weapon, as well as blood smeared across the dorm room floor.
