(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – WARNING: The video below shows the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo in graphic detail. Please do not watch the video if you believe this will upset you.
Former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo was assassinated earlier today by a gunman with a homemade gun.
As you’ll witness in the video below, the gunman seemingly missed when he fired the first shot. Tragically, the second shot did hit Shinzo.
According to one witness account:
“Former Prime Minister Abe was giving a speech normally, but a man came from behind. The first shot heard only a very loud sound and the person did not fall down. However, the moment the second shot was shot, former Prime Minister Abe collapsed,” a witness told NHK. “The [suspect] didn’t seem to run away, he stayed there and the gun was there.”
According to Fox News:
“Ministry of Defense officials that spoke to NHK said the gun used in Abe’s assassination appears to have been homemade and the suspect, Yamagami, spent three years serving in the country’s Maritime Self-Defense Force between 2002 and 2005.
“‘The weapon used by Abe’s assailant made a noise that could be compared to an explosion, and white smoke rose into the air after it was discharged. A gunpowder-like smell could be detected afterward,’ read a report Friday by the Kyodo News, which added that one of their journalists on-scene said the weapon appeared to have been held together with duct tape.”
Besides heroic efforts to save his life by first responders and medical personnel, Shinzo died.
Here is the video. Again, please be warned that the video shows the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo in graphic detail. Please do not watch the video if you believe this will upset you.
