Shinzo Abe: Japan’s Former Prime Minister Not Showing Vital Signs After Shooting

Japan’s former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has collapsed in Nara, western Japan after shots were heard nearby.

Japan’s former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was seen bleeding while campaigning at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, NHK initially reported. The former PM, who is 67, was campaigning for Liberal Democratic Party member Kentaro Asah, 46, when he collapsed during a speech he was giving on a crowded street in the city of Nara.

An NHK reporter who was present during the speech reported hearing a sound akin to a gunshot and witnessed the former prime minister bleeding. Police allegedly captured a suspect involved in the incident and may be questioning him.

Abe was rushed to the hospital following the possible shooting.

Twitter user Gordon Knight shared a video to the social media platform with the caption, “Shinzo Abe shot in the chest in Nara. Attacker caught.”

Abe was first elected to parliament in 1993 before becoming a cabinet member in 2005.

Abe hails from a family of politicians; his father was a foreign minister and his grandfather was a prime minister. A scandal involving the loss of 50 million pension records drew criticism to his administration, but despite battling health issues he is still known as Japan’s longest-serving prime minister.

  1. Shinzo Abe was somewhat a modewrate and did not go completely with the deep state agenda. The current PM is an agent for the deep state. Given that the attacker is a “self-defense unofficial military” guy, there is every chance that the deep state is involved. Japanese society is a very closed on when it comes to their elites, and the truth will never come out.
