KANAGAWA (TR) – Kanagawa Prefectural Police on Sunday announced the arrest of an organized crime member in the shooting of a boss of a rival gang in Fujisawa City the day before, reports TBS News (March 22).
On Saturday at 4:00 p.m., Jun Nakajima, 46, arrived at the Fujisawa Police Station and admitted to shooting Hideaki Mizushima, a 48-year-old upper-level executive of the Yamaguchi-gumi. He was subsequently taken into custody on charges of attempted murder.
At approximately 12:50 a.m. that same day, Nakajima, a member of the rival Inagawa-kai, is alleged to have shot Mizushima in the abdomen with a pistol on a road in a business district near JR Fujisawa Station.
“I shot him but I did not intend to kill him,” said Nakajima in partially admitting to the allegations.
The victim was transported to a nearby hospital. His injuries are expected to require two months to heal.
Police are now investigating whether the two gang members were involved in a dispute.
