A man who killed one person and wounded 14 more with a knife at a Beijing mall in 2018 has been sentenced to death for “intentional murder,” a local intermediate court ruled Thursday.

In February 2018, 35-year-old Zhu Jiye attacked shoppers and staff during the busy period before the Lunar New Year at Joy City, one of Beijing’s most popular shopping malls. His motive was to “vent personal discontent,” according to an article published on the official WeChat account of the Beijing Municipal High People's Court.

Knife attacks are not uncommon in China, and are often attributed to men seeking redress for perceived grievances.

“Zhu’s crime attacking innocent people in a busy and populous public venue before the Chinese Lunar New Year…is extremely serious and shall be punished by law heavily,” the article quoted the intermediate court.
