July 2, 2012: The guard on duty — unarmed, as all security guards and almost all cops in China are — picked up the nearest weapon-like thing he could find, a metal sign that Xu had kicked down, and chased after the would-be assailant, all the while calling for help from fellow guards who were on lunch break.
Two guards, Ni Bing and Han Yimin, responded, and intercepted Xu just 50 meters from the campus's busiest dining hall. They were seriously wounded and fell to the ground, while the third guard, Sun Kaideng, dueled it out, as captured via cell phone by a student in a car.
Ni and Han died of injuries sustained from the fight. Their memorial service was attended by thousands.
