Tsui Yin (Chinese: 徐阴) was a Taiwanese physical education teacher who killed seven people and wounded three others at Li Shing Junior High School, located in a suburb of Taipei, Taiwan on January 26, 1962.[1]

Seeking revenge for his dismissal by the principal in the preceding year, Tsui armed himself with a Canadian-made pistol, entered the school, and killed principal Han Ke-ching, Han's wife, and five other faculty members. The 41-year-old also wounded a female teacher, a female student, as well as the principal's daughter, and then fled the crime scene in a taxi. Tsui was sought by about 50 policemen, but managed to evade a dragnet around the campus of Taiwan University. When he tried to find refuge at a friend's house in downtown Taipei, police eventually caught up with him and took him into custody.[2]

Upon interrogation Tsui admitted to having committed the murders, but during his trial claimed they were not premeditated. He was sentenced to death on March 3,[3] and executed on July 26, 1962, after his request to defer his punishment until after the Asian Games in Jakarta, since he wanted to see the performance of one of his pupils, who was among the Taiwanese sports team, was declined.[4]
