At least three children were killed, and six others injured, in a stabbing incident at a kindergarten in China.

The news of the incident was shared Wednesday by the police in Jiangxi on China's Twitter-like platform, Weibo.

A "gangster" wearing a peaked cap and a mask stormed into the private nursery in Anfu County, the post read, according to AFP. The suspect then attacked the children, who were at the kindergarten.

The ages of the victims have not been revealed.

"Public security organs are making every effort to hunt down the suspect," the police statement said.

This is a developing story.
