Fatal shooting in mall cosmetic clinic, bangkok.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Fatal shooting in mall cosmetic clinic, bangkok.

Post by ta158 » Wed Feb 19, 2020 11:33 pm

A woman was killed and at least one other wounded by a man with a gun at a cosmetic clinic inside a shopping mall near Victory Monument in Bangkok on Tuesday afternoon.

The attack occurred at The Icon Clinic on the fourth floor of the Century The Movie Plaza on Phaya Thai Road about 3.22pm.

A 28-year-old woman, an employee of the cosmetic clinic, was shot dead, hit by 3-4 bullets in her head and body. Another woman, 28, also an employee, was wounded and rushed to a hospital.

The attacker fled.

Police have cordoned off the area. Seven spent 45-calibre cartridges were found scattered at the scene. Investigators suspect jealousy as the motive for the murder.

Police identified the dead woman as Piyanut Chatthai, 28. Another woman, Wilasinee Teepan, 29, was also hit by bullets.

Police said the prime suspect was Danusorn Numcharoen, the former husband of the slain woman.

Pol Col Kissana Phathanacharoen, deputy police spokesman, confirmed there was one woman dead and another woman injured in the attack.

A manhunt was launched for the killer.

Pol Lt Gen Pakapong Pongpetra, commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, said the gunman was the former husband of the slain woman. They had had a decade-long relationship, had a son and were recently separated.

There was no argument between the two prior to the killing, he said. The gunman just intended to kill the woman at the shop. He fired seven rounds of ammunition from an 11mm pistol before fleeing the crime scene on a motorcycle, Pol Lt Gen Pakapong said.

Saw the footage online yesterday. It was pretty cold and brutal. Guy unloaded a full clip into the poor helpless lady, reloaded and then calmly walked out.

RIP to the lady, whatever the circumstances.

Funny how the thais write up this news item...

So the prime suspect is the former husband but then confirmed as the gunman. :facepalm:

There was no argument between the two prior to the killing, he said. The gunman just intended to kill the woman at the shop.
And, without a prior argument, it's not clear what the motive is yet they suspect jealousy? :?
