Police said they received a call at around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday, in which the caller said three people were injured, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police rushed to the house, owned by Takenori Ichikawa, and found a 35-year-old man, a 22-year-old woman and a 16-year-old boy. All three were taken to hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Don't believe the government's claims that criminal syndicates are a thing of the past.

They are just better concealed, but are revealed in incidents such as this.

Exactly.

Even if the article didn't overtly state the criminal syndicate element, gun murder in Japan is predominantly the domain of yakuza.

When did the government say that? You do realize that developments such as meetings, splits between factions, etc. are quite openly reported here, or do you not?

Yes and are you aware that the syndicates are deeply involved with the government?
