Guard stabbed to death; illegal eatery leads to row

A security guard was stabbed to death in a quarrel with one of his colleagues yesterday morning at an office building complex in suburban Jiading District, police said.

Police said they are still hunting for the suspect, who fled.

City police said they received the alert call at 7:09am and found the victim dead.

The man was lying in a parking lot in the complex in Jiading's Anting area.

The parking lot is on the north side of the Detroit Fortune Square complex on Cao'an Highway, said a witness. The dead was identified by a colleague as Zhou Yuanhai from Anhui Province. The suspect is surnamed Tian, colleagues said.

The cause of the quarrel was unknown, said police.

The two started fighting about 6am. Witnesses called police when they saw Zhou lying in his blood.

Meanwhile, Shanghai police are investigating a dispute in a residential area in which four people were injured when a family who ran a barbecue store illegally at their apartment on the first floor came up to smash the windows of a neighbor who kept reporting the business.

The fight happened about 12:50pm on Sunday at a residential building on Dongchang Road, in the Pudong New Area, when the owner of the barbecue store surnamed Lu, his wife and brother-in-law came up to fight a family surnamed Ge on the fifth floor. The three hit Ge's door and smashed Ge's windows with beer bottles piled outside of the door, Ge said.

"I had never thought someone would come and attack my house. This is crazy and lawless," Ge told Shanghai Daily yesterday.

Ill will between the Lu and Ge families had been a long time in the making, according to neighborhood committee officials, who knew about Lu's illegal business but said they could do nothing.

"We had persuaded him not to bother the neighbors many times and that is all what we could do," said a director, surnamed Ying, with the committee yesterday.

Last year, Lu turned his two-bedroom apartment into to a barbecue store. His neighbors living upstairs have been annoyed by the smoke and noise.

"We can never open our windows as long as they're doing their business at night," Ge complained. "How can a man do such business in a residential area? He has no license but no one came to stop the business."

Ge said he had reported the illegal business of Lu to many departments of the government, including urban management and the property management of the residential area.

But he said all his efforts were in vain.
