Shinichi Igawa, the South Korean national of unknown occupation whom police identified as the shooter of two other men at an illegal internet casino in Osaka’s Minami district during the early morning hours of March 11, has been arrested on charges of attempted murder.
Igawa allegedly shot an employee of the internet casino Bar Five in the head, and this victim remains in very serious condition. A male customer was also shot in the stomach, and while his wound is also serious, he appears to be on the path to recovery.
The arrest of Igawa apparently took place this past Saturday and he remains in police custody.
While the alleged motives for the shooting have not been revealed, it is known that Igawa was a frequent patron of Bar Five. (AGB Nippon)
