Tian and his wife Huang Zumei were on their way to Huang's mother to perform a traditional ceremony after their recent marriage, but when Tian lost the sacrificial chicken a quarrel broke out between the two, during which Tian drew a pistol and threatend to shoot his wife, if she would not stop arguing. When she ran away the farmer stabbed her to death with a knife and then proceeded into Wugu village, where he shot dead six people and wounded two more. He then fled and took refuge in a forest, but was eventually discovered by police and killed, when he resisted arrest.
