Shinzo Abe, Japan’s former prime minister, has died after being shot during a speech in western Japan.

The country’s longest-serving prime minister, Abe was campaigning for a parliamentary election in Nara when he was shot from behind. He arrived at Nara Medical University without any vital signs and was eventually declared deceased.

Police in Nara arrested the suspected gunman, who was carrying what appeared to be a handmade, double-barreled weapon.

Here is what the scene looked like:
