On arriving at the scene Banglamung police duty officer Pol.Capt. Jirasak Ap-phang found a team of doctors trying to save the victim’s life but sadly, in the presence of friends and loved ones, he died from injuries inflicted by nearly 50 shotgun pellets in his stomach.

The victim’s name was Ratchapol Praipetch (16) residing at 48/13 Moo. 7 Nongprue, Banglamung. He was a good student at Pattaya Meung 5 school.

The incident took place at around 12:20 a.m. in Soi Siam Country Club, Moo. 5. The victim was riding his motorbike from Soi Nernplubwan where a large number of teenagers had gathered, police said.

The main witness to the event was Sarawut Jiamthong, (13), a student of Nernplubwan school, who was sitting on the back of the victim’s motorbike when the shooting occurred. He said they had been followed by a pickup truck (a white Mitsubishi, L 200, Strada). He couldn’t remember the number plate but he recognized a girl named “Off”, whom both he and the victim knew, sitting in the back of the truck.

The truck drove alongside their motorbike and a man in the passenger seat wound down the window and shot his friend. The first shot didn’t work and the gun misfired but the second shot exploded very loudly, he said. The truck then sped away.

The victim’s mother, Mrs. Arparporn Arunmonwattana (40) said her son had spoken to her three days previously asking for advice concerning threats from a member of a teenage gang who accused him of taking his girlfriend.She said her son was a very good kid and had tried to explain to them that he was not involved with the girl at all and that it was all a misunderstanding.

“They took him from me! They took him from me!”, the distraught mother cried.

Investigators found more information about the suspect, but prefer not to disclose it at this point. They hope they’ll be able to arrest the brutal killer and charge him with murder and possession of weapons.
