A remote controlled handgun in the killer house of the Prime Minister of Japan

Japanese police investigations have revealed new details about the weapon used in the assassination of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Police at the home of Tetsuya Yamagami, accused of killing Abe, seized self-made weapons and tools used to make weapons.

According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, Japanese police seized a 9-barrel handgun, remotely controlled via a mobile phone, from Yamagami’s home.

Police said Abe was killed with a hand-made weapon made from purchased parts online by Yamagami.

Investigations indicated that Yamagami was considering assassinating Abe with bombs before he changed his mind and resorted to a weapon he had made himself.

Yamagami said in the investigation that he made weapons out of steel tubes that he stuck together in multi-barreled pistols.
