The attack took place while Shinzo Abe was giving a speech in the city of Nara. The bullet caused him to suddenly fall down and his body began to bleed.

The attack comes just as Shinzo Abe is campaigning for a by-election in Japan on Sunday. Some videos of the attack have also surfaced showing a runaway at the scene.
Shinzo Abe resigned as Prime Minister in 2000. He resigned because he had been ill for a long time and was not feeling well. He is the longest-serving prime minister in Japan.
He is a special friend of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the two leaders have remembered each other on many occasions. India last year honored Shinjo Abe with the Padma Vibhushan.
