A nursing home worker in China accused of killing three elderly residents with a brick and injuring 15 other people had argued with his boss over unpaid wages.
Luo Renchu, 64, attacked elderly residents and staff at the privately run home in Hunan province early on Thursday, the first day of the Chinese New Year, the Shuangfeng county government said.
Luo fled and police said they apprehended him on a mountain yesterday afternoon.
The official Xinhua News Agency, citing police, reported the attack happened shortly after Luo argued with the nursing home's owner over unpaid wages of 40,000 yuan (£4,220).

An Australian food firm has recalled all packs of frozen berries after a hepatitis A outbreak linked to a Chinese packaging plant.
Officials believe the outbreak may be linked to poor hygiene and water supplies at the Chinese firm, after five people fell ill after eating the Nanna's Mixed Berries, which are produced by Patties Foods Ltd.
The issue has reignited concerns about food safety in Chinese exports, after more than 11,000 schoolchildren in Germany were struck down by vomiting and diarrhoea which authorities linked to frozen strawberries imported from China.
The particular risk that we've identified here is that a country that has endemic hepatitis A, that is China, has been involved with packing these berries.
Clearly there's strong evidence that there may have been a contamination during the packing process as they are fully sealed and then transported to Australia.
