The Hebei tractor rampage was a spontaneous mass murder incident in which 17 people were killed in Yuanshi County, Hebei, China by a shovel loader.[1] The rampage began when coal worker Li Xianliang (李现亮), who had been drinking[2] and had blood alcohol content of 154 milligrams per 100 millilitres,[3] had an argument with a customer,[1] whom he then tried to kill.[2] The customer escaped, but another nearby was killed as the rampage began.[2] The attack followed unrelated attacks on schools elsewhere in China; the Chinese government removed some mentions of the incidents from the internet in China for fear that mass coverage of such violence can provoke copycat attacks.[4] The various attacks on anonymous people and an attack on police have resulted in calls for better mental health care, as mental health problems often go undiagnosed and untreated in China.[5]
