The man accused of killing seven people at two mushroom farms in Half Moon Bay, California, went berserk after his boss ordered him to pay $100 for repairs. This is evident from the first interrogations, according to US media.
Chunli Zhao, 66, came to talk to his supervisor last Monday about a repair bill for a damaged forklift he had to pay. An enraged Zhao insisted that it was not him, but a colleague who was responsible for the collision with a bulldozer. However, the supervisor insisted that he pay $100, after which Zhao shot his boss.
According to the police, Chow shot a total of five nursery workers, of whom only one survived the attack. He then went to a nearby former employer where he shot three more of his former colleagues.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstafe confirmed to the Bay Area News Group on Friday that Chow acted out of anger. Zhao told KNTV-TV Thursday that he was bullied and had to work long hours on mushroom farms and that his complaints were systematically ignored.
