Highlights:

  • Shinzo Abe, the Ex- Japanese Prime Minister was shot upon on Friday in the western city of Nara.
  • The former Japanese Prime Minister collapsed and was brought to the hospital bleeding.
  • According to NHK, he is apparently not exhibiting any vital signs.

Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was shot, reportedly in the chest, as he was delivering a speech. Abe was taken to a medical emergency hospital bleeding and showing no vital signs after the incident.

Video of Abe collapsing on the street with many security personnel rushing to help him was broadcast on NHK public television. When Abe collapsed, he was holding his chest and had blood all over his clothes.

Prior to Sunday’s election for the upper house of parliament, Shinzo Abe was in Nara campaigning and was in the middle of a speech when a gunshot was heard.

A young woman who was there told NHK that “he was giving a speech when a man came from behind.”

“Abe, a former prime minister, was shot in Nara at around 11:30 a.m. One man has been arrested and is thought to be the shooter. Currently unknown is the condition of former Prime Minister Abe,” Hirokazu Matsuno, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, informed reporters.

At the scene, police detained a male suspect on suspicion of attempted murder. Apparently, the pistol has also been seized.

Abe, 67, resigned as prime minister in 2020, citing a recurrence of a long-standing health issue. Since he was a teenager, Abe has had ulcerative colitis, which he believes can be controlled with treatment.

A country of 125 million people in Japan has among of the strictest gun control laws in the world, and the number of firearm-related deaths there each year is typically in the single digits.

Even for Japanese citizens, who must first obtain a recommendation from a shooting association and then go through rigorous police inspections, obtaining a gun licence is a time-consuming and difficult process.
