Police of the central province of Hunan in China on Tuesday captured a man suspected of triple homicide 23 years ago.

Police of Changsha City, the capital of Hunan said that the man was apprehended in south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Sunday.

“It is alleged that the suspect, Liu, had a run-in with several villagers on Jan. 27, 1994 and fatally shot three of them before fleeing,’’ police noted.

Police were tipped off in November that Liu might be hiding in Liangqing District in Nanning, the capital of Guangxi.

The ensuing investigation uncovered that the man had assumed a fake identity.

Report says the investigation continues.
