SEOUL — An angry former math professor shot a Seoul High Court justice with a crossbow arrow outside the judge’s home on Monday night, Jamsil police said.

Park Hong-woo suffered a puncture wound to his left midsection but was not critically injured, police said.

Kim Myung-ho was arrested on the scene after apartment guards and Park’s drivers called police.

Police say Kim was upset because Park dismissed an appeal this month to get the professor reinstated at Sungkyunkwan University, where he was fired in 1996.
