In addition, bleeding was recorded in the chest area on the left, noting that at the time of the injury he was conscious, but during transportation his condition became critical, “with cardiac and pulmonary arrest.”

Police and security forces immediately arrested the shooter, 41-year-old Tetsuya Yamagami. He did not show any resistance during the arrest.

The defendant said that he was “dissatisfied with Abe and wanted to kill him”, then said that his target was originally another politician, and later Abe was chosen, and stated that Abe was connected with the “organization”.
