Minor kills restaurant owner after late food delivery

Prosecutors in Shanghai charged a 17-year-old boy with intentional injury for killing a restaurant owner after he was late delivering his food.

The prosecutors of Jiading District said the unemployed minor ordered five take-away meals from a restaurant near the hotel he lived in but left his room before the food arrived to have dinner with friends this July.

The restaurant boss found the unnamed boy and his friends after they finished dinner, and yelled at them for wasting his time. A friend of the restaurant's owner surnamed Lu also joined in the argument, according to the indictment.

The youngsters said they went out for dinner because the owner was late delivering their food.
The restaurant owner and his friend left the hotel but were followed out by the minor carrying a knife. He stabbed Lu on his stomach and ran away. Lu died the next day in a hospital.

The boy surrendered himself to police several days later after hiding out.
