The niece of four people who were shot, including two fatally, in Hong Kong has been arrested on suspicion for murder and attempted murder.

One of the suspect’s aunts and one of her uncles died in the attack which was reportedly sparked by a dispute over the inheritance of a £770,000 apartment.

Police have arrested a 44-year-old woman after the pair, along with another aunt and uncle, were targeted with a pistol in Quarry Bay Park.

The suspect apparently worked as a bodyguard in mainland China.

A row about how to share out the proceeds from the sale of a flat left by the woman’s late grandmother led to the killings, according to reports.

Her 62-year-old uncle died on Wednesday after he was taken to hospital with a head injury the previous day.

Her 80-year-old aunt died in hospital on Tuesday while the two other casualties were shot in the arm.

The suspected attacker was arrested in a nearby shopping centre and a pistol was recovered.
