Chen Xuerong was a Chinese factory worker who killed eight people and wounded three others with a hunting rifle in Chongqing, People's Republic of China on April 5, 1993.

Chen, a worker at the Chongqing machine factory, who was angered by a mistake on his timesheet, armed himself with a hunting rifle and searched for his boss with the intent to kill him, but upon finding that the latter was not present he shot dead three of his co-workers.

Chased by security guards Chen escaped the factory grounds by jumping over a wall, and once out on the street fired at a family of four passing by on a motorcycle with sidecar, fatally hitting a man and two women, and wounding the fourth. He next injured a soldier in a van, and then killed another man, on whose bike he fled. At a junction Chen stopped and hijacked a taxi, after killing the driver, and injuring his passenger, and eventually killed himself by driving down a 30-meters deep ravine, about 40 minutes after firing his first shots.[1][2][3][4][5]
