SHANGHAI - More than 10,000 armed police officers in Nanjing are still hunting for a man believed to be responsible for a series of robberies and shootings as the police released more details about the suspect.

In a blanket search effort, about 13,000 police officers in Jiangsu's provincial capital, remained on the alert during the weekend to hunt down Zeng Kaigui, suspected to have killed a man who withdrew money from a bank and robbed 200,000 yuan ($31,700) cash on Friday.

Intense patrolling and screening was carried out in major roads, train stations, bus stops and ports. Internet cafes, hotels and other sites frequented by the migrant population were being searched meticulously.

Two police helicopters were put into service as part of the search.

Zeng, 42, a native of Sichuan province, served as an armed police officer in Dali, Yunnan province, between 1989 and 1992. He is suspected to have committed a series of similar crimes in Changsha and Chongqing, killing at least six people and heavily injuring another two, according to Nanjing police.

According to the sub-police bureau of Xuanwu district, the suspect is a skilled shooter and can disguise himself to avoid detection.

In addition to the sketches of Zeng released by the police on Friday, details about his lifestyle were circulated. Apparently, he practices thrift and does not like communicating with others; he uses gestures and body language when buying breakfast rather than uttering words; he prefers wearing a peaked cap, sunglasses and gloves.
