Ding, 38, who runs a furniture shop in Luohe city, Henan, is alleged to have gone on a rampage with a knife after a minor local dispute. At noon on Thursday, he allegedly stabbed three people to death and injured two others in his home village of Dazhuzhuang, in Xiping county.

He is then suspected to have driven back to the furniture market and killed a female shop owner, before murdering a taxi driver outside the market and driving away the taxi. Police say that Ding hijacked a second taxi later after injuring the driver with a knife.

He fled after the incidents. Police offered rewards for clues leading to his capture.
