Other news stories are saying he had the vials of atropine, but no syringe or auto-injector, so he would have had no way to use it.

Being in the family he probably was well aware of any standing plans for assassinating defectors, but wasn't knowledgeable enough in how to actually know how to defend against it.

He was sort of the Fredo of the Kim mob.

I wonder if it has occurred to anyone that next month's summit meeting about North Korea in Vancouver puts all of Kim Jong Un's enemies in one place at one time, inside of the supposed range of his missiles?

Yes. That's called a lure.

Maybe it is time to stop paying attention to the media. All of the media, including the intertubes, twitter, and whatever.
An early-morning emergency alert mistakenly warning of an incoming ballistic missile attack was dispatched to cellphones across Hawaii on Saturday, setting off widespread panic in a state that was already on edge because of escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea.

The alert, sent by the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, was revoked 38 minutes after it was issued, prompting confusion over why it was released — and why it took so long to rescind. State officials and residents of a normally tranquil part of the Pacific, as well as tourists swept up in the panic, immediately expressed outrage.

“What happened today was totally unacceptable,” said Gov. David Y. Ige. “Many in our community were deeply affected by this. I am sorry for that pain and confusion that anyone might have experienced.”
Of course, Gov. Ige, it might help if you stopped feeding the anxiety.
The alert went out at about 8:10 a.m., lighting up phones of people still in bed, having coffee by the beach at a Waikiki resort, or up for an early surf. “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” it read.
