South Korean troops are involved in a standoff with a soldier who shot dead five colleagues during a rampage near the heavily armed border with North Korea.

The soldier, a 22-year-old army sergeant identified only by his surname, Lim, fled with his weapon after opening fire on fellow members of the 22nd infantry division in the border town of Goseong, Gangwon province, on Saturday night.

Yonhap news agency said Lim, who last year was diagnosed as requiring special attention due to mental health issues, had just ended his day shift when he hurled a grenade before opening fire with a semi-automatic K2 assault rifle, killing five colleagues and injuring another seven.

By Sunday, troops had cornered Lim near an elementary school about 10km from his guard post. Local media reports said gunfire had been exchanged; others said his parents had been taken to the scene but failed to persuade him to give himself up.
