Zan Baoshi, chairman of the board of Datong’s Huayue Group Ltd, was kidnapped on his way to work on Tuesday morning. The company’s chairman Dong Jiewei reported the incident to the police and said that the kidnappers had contacted the company and demanded a ransom of $20 million.

Police bureau assistant Wang Wencheng personally led a team of 10 officers to rescue Zan. They tracked the kidnappers down to Maozao village and began to search for Zan.

Police came upon a suspicious vehicle parked on the side of the road. They then noticed a BMW X1 parked near the other vehicle. Police quickly surrounded the vehicle. One of the suspects hiding in the car started shooting at the police. Police shot back and two suspects were killed in the gunfight.

Police seized the two cars, and two Type 54 pistols. Zan was rescued, but four police were wounded by the suspects. Two suspects were arrested and are now in police custody.
