Japan's Shinzo Abe assassination: Who is suspect Tetsuya Yamagami?

The 41-year-old suspect in the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe reportedly has told police Friday that he was dissatisfied with the ex-leader and wanted to kill him, but not over his political beliefs.

Tetsuya Yamagami, who hails from Nara – where the 67-year-old Abe was gunned down while making a speech – is currently facing an attempted murder charge. But local police are expected to upgrade the charge to murder, according to Japanese broadcaster NHK.

"Former Prime Minister Abe was giving a speech normally, but a man came from behind. The first shot heard only a very loud sound and the person did not fall down. However, the moment the second shot was shot, former Prime Minister Abe collapsed," a witness told NHK. "The [suspect] didn't seem to run away, he stayed there and the gun was there."

The killing has sent shockwaves around the world and throughout Japan, a country with notoriously strict gun ownership laws.

Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been asassinated in Nara. Tetsuya Yamagami is the assassin.

The motive will relate to Taiwan. 

The clue involves the homemade shotgun.

In theory, the investigation breaks-down because of the homemade shotgun.  It becomes a tediously overlapping paper chase.

Abe was the 'communism-containment guy' during his current campaign.
