  • The Akihabara massacre was an incident of mass murder that took place on Sunday, June 8, 2008, in the Akihabara shopping quarter for electronics, video games, manga and anime in Sotokanda, Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan. At 12:33. JST, a man drove into a crowd with a truck, eventually killing three people and injuring two; he then stabbed at least 12 people using a dagger, killing four people and injuring eight. Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department arrested Tomohiro Katō, 25, on suspicion of attempted murder. The suspect, dressed then in a black T-shirt with a jacket and off-white trousers, was a resident of Susono, Shizuoka. He was held at the Manseibashi Police Station. Two days later on June 10, he was sent to the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office. He was later re-arrested by the police on June 20 on suspicion of murder. Kato was sentenced to death by the Tokyo District Court in 2011, and the sentence was upheld on appeal in 2012. As of June 8, 2014, he remains alive on death row. Wikipedia
