Hong Kong - Two of the past week's most sensational stories in Hong Kong - a Kowloon Bay gunman who shot a neighbour before committing suicide, and the marital woes of actress Lee Sinje and director Oxide Pang - took a surprising twist today when they turned out to be related.

The gunman, Li Tak Yan, is the father of Liddy Li, the model reported to be the third party in Lee and Pang's marriage, said Apple Daily.

Li Tak Yan, a divorced, unemployed 51-year-old, killed a 41-year-old mechanic on Saturday night, locked himself in his home and had a six-hour standoff with policemen. Li, an immigrant from Hunan province, China, finally shot himself in the mouth on Sunday morning.

Later, the police seized a Chinese Black Star pistol and a homemade gun at his flat in Lok Ching House, a rental block in Kai Ching Estate, said Ming Pao Daily News.
