PATTAYA – December 26, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 5 p.m., a report of a shooting that killed someone and injured several others was received by Pol. Lt. Capt. Krittha Pratumkaew, officer of the shift, Pattaya police station. He rushed to check the scene with Pol. Lt. Col. Anek Srathong U, the suppression inspector; detective forces and rescuers from the Sawang Boriboon foundation Pattaya.

The shootings occurred in the middle of soi 7, at the Silver Star go go bar in Central Pattaya near Beach Road. When police reached the scene, they found one victim lying on the ground in a pool of blood, crying out in pain.

He had been shot four times: in his right shoulder, stomach, in the middle of his back, and under his right armpit. He was identified as Mr. Wuttipong Janprakone, 31 years old, from Samrong, Pabplachai, Buriram.

He was shot while running out of soi 7, before he fell on the ground at the beach, opposite to the entrance of soi 8, about100 meters from the Pattaya police station.

The rescue team immediately sent Mr. Wuttipong to Pattaya Memorial hospital. Checking the scene, officers found a 9 mm gun dropped on the beach that was loaded with 5 bullets. So the police seized the gun as evidence.

Police questioned a witness, Mr. Manas Khempetch, 23 years old. He said that he saw the man ran out of soi 7 with a gun. Then the man ran to the beach and threw his gun away, before collapsing to the ground.

The officers checked on two more injured victims, including one who was fatally shot. The dead victim was identified as Mr. Pradit Nansa, 23 years old, who was shot on his left cheek bone, and also through his left ribs, with the bullet severing an artery in his heart and killing him.

The other injured victim, Mr. Peerapol Ninpirat, 20 years old, suffered a cut at his right wrist.

After initial investigation by police, it appeared that Mr. Wuttipong had armed himself with a gun to seek revenge on Mr. On over a previous dispute. At the time, Mr. On was drinking beer in a bar with Mr. Pradit, who accidentally got shot while Mr. On ran away to hide.

Then other men with guns shot Mr. Wuttipong four times as he was trying to run away and escape down soi 7.
