TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A Taiwanese marine was shot to death inside his car in southern Taiwan by a group of gangsters on scooters who thought he was another man, reported CNA.

At 3 a.m. on June 2, a 23-year-old soldier surnamed Ho (何) had just finished refueling his blue Hyundai at a gas station on Yanping Road in Pingtung County’s Chaozhou Township and had barely driven 300 meters when more than 10 vehicles suddenly approached him from behind. One car blocked him from the front, while the rest pulled up from behind and a mob of 15 to 16 angry men jumped out and smashed his windows.

Next someone fired shots into the vehicle and Ho was mortally wounded.

After police brought in over 20 people for interrogations, they discovered that it was a case of mistaken identity. A man surnamed Yin (鄞) was angry that his girlfriend, surnamed Lee (李), had broken up with him and he wanted to beat her. Lee’s female friend, surnamed Hsu (許), on Facebook cursed Yin and he retaliated, causing her boyfriend, surnamed Wang (王), to become enraged.   [FULL  STORY]
