A man suspected of killing two and injuring three in Putian, Fujian province, resisted arrest and committed suicide on Monday, according to a statement issued by the Xiuyu branch of Putian Public Security Bureau.

The 55-year-old suspect surnamed Ou allegedly broke into the house of his neighbor with a knife due to dispute over land for building a house on Oct 10 in Pinghai township of Xiuyu district, Putian city, leaving two people dead and three injured, it said. He then fled the scene.
