A knife-wielding man was overpowered by police on a busy street in Sanmenxia City in central China’s Henan Province on Monday.
The man was believed to be suffering from mental disorder. One of his relatives called the police after he accidentally went out of home with a 20 cm-long dagger.
The man continued to brandishing the knife while police fired warning shots into the air. He was overpowered about an hour later after police shot at one of his legs.
No one else was injured in the incident.
