Shanghai authorities say a man stormed into a police station and stabbed five officers to death. The Shanghai public security bureau says in a news release that the 28-year-old man rushed into the building Tuesday morning after setting a fire outside a gate. He started attacking police officers who were working inside.

The bureau says five officers died after being taken to a hospital. Four other police officers and one security guard were injured.

Shanghai police say the suspect is from Beijing and unemployed. They say he was seeking revenge after officers at the station investigated him last year for allegedly stealing bicycles.
