A man diagnosed with stage 4 cancer has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly drove hundreds of miles to kill three doctors who had previously treated him.

Yue Chen, 58, was arrested after police suspected he may be travelling more than 200 miles from his home in Visalia to murder the three doctors.

The officers discovered the 58-year-old had rented a car and was missing from the area, along with his two-legally owned handguns on May 31, according to a Palo Alto Police Department press release.

He is thought to have become upset about his medical condition and the treatment he had received from the doctors and allegedly sought revenge.

Visalia police urged law enforcement agencies throughout California to be on the look out for Chen and also contacted multiple agencies in the Bay Area.



On the evening of May 31, around 7,48pm, the California Highway Patrol managed to locate and stop Chen in his rental car on Highway 101 and Hellyer Avenue in San Jose.

Officers said they found two loaded semi-automatic handguns with high-capacity magazines in the car within reach of him.

Investigators also reportedly found a face mask, a notebook with the names and home addresses of the three doctors.

A note titled 'Why Do I Kill' that cited the reasons 'revenge' and 'this is the possible result if you treat people as an animal' was also found.

Chen was arrested and taken to a local hospital for treatment related to his medical condition.

He was then taken to Santa Clara County Main Jail where he was charged with three counts of attempted murder and carrying a loaded firearm.
