The man who attacked a private kindergarten in Anfu county of Ji'an, Jiangxi province, was arrested on Wednesday night, according to the county.

The suspect, named Liu Xiaohui, 48, killed three people and injured six at the kindergarten at 10:22 am on Wednesday, according to a notice released by the Anfu public security bureau on Wednesday afternoon.

He fled to the mountainous areas of Zhongshe village, Wan'an county of Ji'an, after the murder. Local authorities sent about 1,100 members of their police force to hunt him down. He was arrested at an expressway near the village. The suspect was sent to a local hospital for emergency treatment.

The Jiangxi Education Department released a notice late Wednesday, saying that all-out efforts should be made to treat the injured and reduce death from the incident, and that campus safety management should be strengthened at all schools, especially private kindergartens, to guard the lives of teachers and students.
