Kyodo news agency reported there was some kind of confrontation between the priestess and her brother, named as Shigenaga Tomioka.
Two women were killed and another person was injured Thursday night in a stabbing incident at a Shinto shrine in Tokyo, with the male suspect appearing to have committed suicide, police said.
Police said that Nagako Tomioka, the 58-year-old head of Tomioka Hachimangu shrine, was attacked as she got out of her auto Thursday night.
At around 8:30 p.m., the police received an emergency call saying there was a person holding an edged weapon and they found a samurai sword and two survival knives near the attack site.
The four were sent to a hospital, where the three were confirmed dead.
The attack began around 8:25 p.m., when Shigenaga Tomioka attacked his sister with a Japanese sword as she exited her vehicle on the shrine grounds. She then slashed him in the right shoulder. The driver's injuries were not life-threatening.
