The killer: A former soldier who was unemployed and capable of creating his own weapon

The attack on Shinzo Abe, former Prime Minister of Japan, has caused great commotion in a country known for its security and absence of political radicalism. While all of the questions remain unanswered, many details have been revealed that shed some light on this assassination.

According to Kyodo news agency the alleged murderer is Tetsuya Yamagami, a 41-year old former military officer and unemployed who shot Abe at a Nara station, in the southwest part of the country, and near Kyoto. Fuji television reports that he was a member of the Maritime Self-Defense Forces for three-years, from 2005 to 2005. However, his motives for attacking Abe remain unknown. The Police searched his home and found "explosives" after his arrest.

Investigators are currently investigating the environment of the detainee and looking for clues on social networks to help them find possible explanations beyond his apparent discontent towards the former prime Minister. The source of the weapon's construction is being investigated as well. The images show that he used a homemade weapon. It is a sawn-off shotgun equipped with two cylinders and adhesive tape. They are sized "similarly to a television camera". The barrels were filled with thick, white smoke when he released her before his arrest.
