PATTAYA – March 29, 2014 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 5.30 a.m. Pol.Col. Supphachai Phuikaewkham (Superintendent of Pattaya city police station, Chonburi Province) was notified that there was a shooting and there were 2 injured victims. The Incident occurred in front of Bae Ka Din restaurant, south Pattaya road, Moo 10 Tambon Nong Prue, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi Province, so he rushed to inspect at scene together with the detective police team and the rescuers of Sawang Boriboon Tharmma Satharn Foundation, Pattaya city.

At the incident the officers found a female who had been shot in her hip and back and was severely injured. The rescuers performed first aid for her then sent her to Banglamung hospital. She was identified as Miss Nguyen Thi Ngan, aged 28, Vietnamese nationality who walks around selling flowers.

Upon questioning Mr. Woraphon Chusrichart, aged 20, a motorbike taxi rider nearby the incident told the police that before incident occurred he saw a group of male teenagers riding 3-4 motorbikes who slowed down in front of Bae Ka Din restaurant and there was a male teenager who rode a motorbike following the first group. Then he heard the sound of gunfire then the group of teenagers fled the scene heading to the intersection of south Pattaya third road and the motorbike rider who followed the first group of teenagers (which Mr. Woraphon assumed that he was the shooter) had fled in the direction to the entrance route of south Pattaya. Mr. Woraphon knew that the Vietnamese female florist had been shot while she was parking her bicycle in order to sell flowers in the restaurant.

Later on the police were informed by Pattaya Memorial hospital that there was a man who had been shot and had come for treatment so the officers went to inspect at the hospital. The injured man was identified as Mr. Jo (alias), aged 17, he had been shot in his left leg. Upon questioning Mr. Jo, the police perceived that before incident occurred Mr. Jo went to a pub with his friend then he drove his motorbike to refill the petrol at the petrol station at the entrance route of south Pattaya and when he arrived in front of the incident restaurant then he saw the group of male teenagers were shooting at their rivals but he didn’t realise he had been shot until his leg started hurting so his friend took him to Pattaya Memorial for treatment.

After that the officers were notified that 1 motorbike taxi rider at the beginning of Soi south Pattaya 13 was assaulted by being hit at his occiput (nape/nucha/scruff) with a gun so the officers rushed to investigate the injured man at Banglamung hospital. He was identified as Mr. Anucharn Ongram, aged 45, address 89 Moo 19 Tambon Samed, Amphur Mueang Buriram, Buriram province.

Upon questioning Mr. Phromma Khidha, aged 54, (Mr. Anucha’s friend who was the motorbike taxi rider of the same terminal), said that Mr. Anucharn was hit with a gun by a motorbike taxi rider of a new terminal that had just been located in front of Krungthai bank, Wat Chaimongkhol market. Mr. Phromma claimed that 1 motorbike taxi rider of his terminal rode and cut in front of the trouble maker’s motorbike after the trouble maker and other motorbike taxi riders of the new terminal attacked and assaulted Mr. Anucharn group(the victim) so they fled the group of trouble makers in the direction to the entrance route of south Pattaya until arrived in front of Bae Ka Din restaurant where slowed down to see whether the group of trouble makers were still following them. Then they saw that the trouble maker group was still chasing after them who shot at them so they fled at speed.

After inspecting and investigating at the incident in detail then the police made note record for evidence. Initially, the officers assumed that the cause of this incident might be the conflict of interest of the 2 motorbike taxi terminals between the preceding (prior/anterior) terminal and the new terminal and they often quarrelled which the officers already knew who were the trouble makers. However, the police will follow up to arrest and prosecute them further according to the Thai law.
