"We are the victims as well. All three families are broken suddenly," Shao Zongqi's father said in despair. After the shooting, staffers from the village committee said that Shao Zongqi came to the committee several times and tried to divorce his wife, Liu Benhong.
"No one wants Shao Zongqi to get a divorce because they have been married for years and have a child," one staffer said.
"In fact, we planned to bring all parties together and have a chat on Feb 5. Unexpectedly, the shooting happened on Jan 30," the staffer added.
In the Chinese tradition, people want to persuade separated couples to get back together instead of breaking up. To seek a so-called happy ending, some even stay in broken relationships under pressure from other people.
