PATTAYA – September 9, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]: at 2 a.m., a report of a road rage shooting at a foreigner’s car was received by Pol. Lt. Col. Chalermkiat Sirimark, detective officer of Pattaya police station, Dong Tarl- sub- branch.

He rushed with the detective team and Pol. Lt. Col. Kiattisak Sratong-oi, vice director of suppression division, to the scene on Jomtien Rd, route 2, moo 2, Nong Prue, Banglamung, Chonburi.

At the Jomtien beach inbound road, police found the shaken victim standing next to his car, a white Mazda BT 50 pickup truck, registration code 6650.

There were four bullet holes in his truck, fired by a gun of unknown caliber. The truck was hit at the door and the driver’s side mirror.

The driver was a 35-year-old Austrian, Mr. Amir Mujit, who was waiting to give his testimony in shock and paranoia.

Mr. Amir told police he had been drinking beer in a Pattaya bar before the incident. When he was driving back to his home in Jomtien, a silver bronze Toyota Corona sedan drove near him then cut in front of him. This angered Mr. Amir, so he cut back in front of the Toyota. This angered the people in the other car, who opened their window and showed their gun, and started firing at Mr. Amir’s car. Fortunately, he was not hit by the bullets.

Mr. Amir said there were several people in the Toyota, but he did not get the license number of the car. Mr. Amir felt fortunate to have survived his close call with death.

Pol. Lt. Col. Kiatisak Srathong-oi issued an alert on the police radio to intercept the suspect sedan, but there was no sign of the vehicle. The police filled out the daily record and send the detective team to check the roadside CCTV where the shooting occurred, to find clues to identify the car and arrest the suspects.

Police assumed the expected primary reasons for the shooting, that the Toyota car cross cut the victim’s car, and the victim got angry and cross cut back, resulting in the suspects firing a gun to frighten him.
