A murder suspect who fled to the Chinese mainland after allegedly gunning down a man in Taiwan will be sent back to the island after finishing quarantine at a mainland hotel, a mainland spokesman said on Tuesday.

The suspect, a Taiwan resident surnamed Huang, allegedly shot dead a man in New Taipei City on the island on Nov 22. He took a flight from Taiwan to Xiamen, Fujian province, that day, where he is staying in a quarantine hotel as required, Taiwan media reported.

Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesman for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said on Tuesday that police in Xiamen launched an investigation, and the suspect confessed to the shooting.

To crack down on violent crimes, safeguard the lives and property of people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits and maintain cross-Straits relations, Xiamen police decided to send the suspect back to Taiwan, he said.
