Local resident said that "This area is a very peaceful neighborhood. I could never have imagined something like this happening. I am extremely shocked."

Police say Satoshi Uematsu is a former employee of the facility. The 26 year old gave himself up to police after killing people in their sleep. Mass killings are extremely rare in Japan where few people possess firearms and gun laws are strict.
