Police in Da Nang City on Wednesday said they had arrested a Chinese man suspected of killing his business rival in front of the latter's home a month ago.
Feng Long Chun, 27, turned himself in to police at Moc Bai Border Gate in Tay Ninh Province on December 27.
Feng reportedly fled the country to Cambodia after he shot Li Muzi, 31, dead over business conflicts.
At around 7:45 a.m. on November 26, Li was about to drive his three-year-old daughter to school when Feng shot him with a short gun in front of Li’s house in Da Nang.
Li collapsed and his bike fell on him. His daughter was safe inside the house at the time.

Feng, who wore a mask, reportedly fled the scene on his motorbike immediately.
Li’s wife and father-in-law rushed out from the house and brought him to hospital, where he succumbed to internal bleeding around noon.
According to some eyewitnesses, Feng had waited in an eatery near Li’s house for a while before the victim showed up.
Police later identified Feng as the main suspect. They said Feng took revenge on Li after being accused of selling fake SIM cards to Chinese tourists in Da Nang. Both of them were in the lucrative business, police said, adding that each could earn around $4,500 a month.
According to investigators Feng bought the gun in Thailand for US$1,500 and then entered Vietnam via Cambodia. After killing Li, he threw the gun into a river before fleeing to Cambodia.
