Bullets flew as attackers, who used surgical masks to cover their faces, allegedly fired “a dozen guns” before speeding away in a car without a licence plate, a user on Wechat said. Pictures posted on social media showed the crime scene was cordoned off and police were investigating the case. No arrests have been made.
