Police reward for gunman who killed 4

POLICE in central China's Hunan Province are offering a 200,000 yuan (US$29,000) reward for a suspected serial killer linked to at least four murders since 2004.

Police released a facial composite yesterday of the suspect who shot dead salesman Guo Chaoyun and robbed him of 45,000 yuan near a bank last Friday in Changsha City's Tianxin District.

A bank clerk who saw the shooting compiled a sketch describing a stout man in his 40s, with a crewcut, reported Web portal today.

Forty-one-year-old Guo had no personal enemies and was a low-profile person, his neighbors said. His teenage daughter is still not aware of his death.

Ballistic evidence linked the killer with another shooting in the city on October 14, when a 56-year-old man was shot six times and died in Nanjiao Park.

Victim Li Chengshou was a farmer who had just arrived in town to help look after his grandchild. Police suspect that the killer picked Li as a random victim to hone his shooting skills before he planned the bank robbery.

The police sketch resembles the suspect in two fatal robberies in Chongqing Municipality in 2004 and 2005. The man struck twice in the southwestern city, killing three people, injuring two and netting 170,000 yuan.
