in Taipei that a middle-aged man had carried out the shooting on March 19
because he was depressed about difficulties in selling a house and blamed the

National sympathy for President Chen, who was grazed in the abdomen, helped
the president win re-election the following day by fewer than 30,000 votes of
13.3 million cast. The losing ticket of candidates from the Nationalist Party

unsuccessful attempt to overturn the vote.
The police said Monday that the man had left a suicide note describing his
anger at the president, but not taking responsibility for the shooting. A
police official said the family burned the note and tried to keep the
incident secret to avoid shame, but recently described the note to the police
after investigators traced the purchase of the gun and bullets.
Nationalist Party and People First Party officials said early Monday
afternoon that they did not believe the police version, and would proceed
with a previously scheduled demonstration on the anniversary of the attack.
