Netizen first posted an entry on Weibo, “12:50 pm, murder near the 27 Plaza” and a picture, one man lying on the floor covered with blood. At 1:07 another entry “Life is too fragile and short, when 120 and the police came it was too late.”

Reporter learned from the police station, major artery was cut on victim Li’s right leg, Li died of excessive bleeding.  Another victim named Zhang Guofeng was sent to the hospital.

On February 25, when Feng was looking at cell phones at a mobile phone shop in the 27 Plaza, a man approached him with an Apple IPhone.  He said it was a genuine Apple IPhone, he could take it too the Apple retailer for verification if Feng doubted him.  Feng took a look at the phone; it looked exactly the same as the IPhone.  After some bargaining, the two agreed on the price of 2000 yuan.

The man then asked Feng to wait there and he would go get a new phone for him. A few minutes later, the man handed over Feng a “new Apple iPhone” to Feng with a cell phone cover on it.  Feng was very satisfied that the seller even gave him a sell phone cover for free.  The seller took the money and left in a hurry.

After the man was gone, Feng opened his new phone and noticed it was very different from a real IPhone, and then he realized that he was deceived, but that man had disappeared without a trace.
