Railway police in Xi’an, Northwest China’s Shaanxi Province shot down a man on Wednesday at a train station who had charged into a ticket line with a brick, local authorities announced. The man was spotted rushing a line of people in the ticket lobby at Xi’an Railway Station early Wednesday morning, according to a police statement. 

“The man was shot and injured after he ignored repeated police warnings. He died in spite of emergency treatment,” read the statement on the official Weibo account of the Xi’an Railway Police.

An earlier post read that the man was a Uyghur but was soon deleted. 

Photos show the bleeding man lying on the ground with several police officers standing nearby.
