Police in Yashio, Saitama Prefecture, said Monday they are investigating the death of a 24-year-old man who came into a 7-Eleven convenience store, bleeding from stab wounds and died shortly after.
According to police, the man, identified as Kodai Kiyota, came into the store at around 3:30 a.m. Saturday. NTV quoted a store employee as saying he could barely walk and that he was bleeding from several parts of his body. He collapsed on the floor and was pronounced dead soon after.
Police said surveillance camera footage showed that the man had been involved in an altercation with a group of men outside the store. Several cars were seen in the 7-Eleven parking lot prior to the altercation, but they all left just before the victim struggled to get into the store, NTV reported.
Police said they are questioning Kiyota's friend and brother who were with him prior to the attack and they are also examining surveillance camera footage to identify the vehicles in the parking lot.© Japan Today
