Shooting in Korat Terminal21 Mall Now

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.

Another one of these no-dick gun-nut heroes who fetishises weapons because they haven't got a c**k or a brain that works. Need a gun.
Quite a common syndrome. Normally just pathetic, but sometimes deadly dangerous.

12 killed as soldier opens fire in Korat

NAKHON RATCHASIMA: At least 12 people were reported killed and an unknown number injured in a shooting spree by a soldier who later took hostages at a local shopping mall in Saturday evening.

The attacker first shot dead his commander and two others at the Surathampithak army camp before fleeing in a stolen Humvee. He fired at civilians along the route to the Terminal 21 shopping mall in Muang district.

Local media showed video of the soldier getting out of a vehicle in front of the mall around 6pm and firing a series of shots, sending people running. Gunshots could be heard on the video.

Once inside, the attacker fired at a cooking gas container inside the mall’s food court, causing it to explode and sending shoppers into a panic.

Troops from a special warfare unit were dispatched to the mall, where the attacker was said to be holding 16 people hostage on the fourth floor.

There were unconfirmed reports that the man had hand grenades on his body.

The attacker streamed his activity at the mall on Facebook Live and posted a selfie showing him holding a rifle. “Tired, I can barely move my fingers,” he said on a video posted at 7.20pm.

The Facebook page was taken offline a few moments later.

Thai media reported that 12 people were killed. The number of injured people was not yet known.

Lt Gen Thanya Kriatisarn, commander of the Second Army Region, said police and soldiers were hunting the attacker, identified as Cpl Jakrapanth Thomma, 32, of the Surathampithak camp.

The slain commander has been identified as Col Anantharot Krasae. A 63-year-old woman and another soldier were also killed at the camp

very sad an very very unusual for this to happen in Thailand .
In fact i think this must be the worst ever mass shooting here.
Last year on Jan 1st 7 were killed in a mass shooting

Bangkok:

Thai soldier killed many people Saturday in a livestreamed mass shooting across several locations in a northeastern city, police said.

"The gunman used a machine gun and shot innocent victims resulting in many injured and dead," a police spokesperson told AFP, with a health department official reporting 17 fatalities.

"I cannot confirm the death toll right now, police sealed off the area."

The gunman, identified by police as Sergeant Major Jakapanth Thomma, stole an army vehicle and also posted photos and video of himself in full tactical gear as the attack in Korat was carried out.
