An attacker who has now been identified as Satoshi Uematsu attacked a care center for disabled people in Japan.
19 people have been confirmed dead so far (nine women and ten men).
The attack which occurred at around 2:30 local time left at least 26 other people injured and will go down as Japan’s worst mass attack.
The incident occurred at the Tsukui Yamayuri En (Tsukui Lily Garden) facility in Sagamihara and curiously, Uematsu is a former employee of the facility.
He reportedly turned himself in after the attack and even told police, “It is better that disabled people disappear.”
