On 8 August 2007, at 8:20 PM, Pol.Lt.Col.Thanagrit Larb-Ithisanti, of Pattaya Investigation, received a report that a shooting, with injury, took place in front of Sun Dance Karaoke, located at the bottom of Soi Day-Night, South Pattaya. Pol.Col. Suthin Sabphueng, with a police team, rushed to investigate.
At the incident, in front of Sun Dance Karaoke bar, police observed blood on the ground. A staff member told police that the person who had been shot had already been transferred to the hospital. He was identified as Mr. Pongthep Paphisen, nickname “Ole” (19). He was shot in the face and severely injured and died on the way to the hospital.

Police questioned Mr. Nathawut Suksunai (20), another staff member and friend of Mr. Phongthep (Ole). Mr. Nathawut said that three days ago, Mr. Phongthep went out to the front of Karaoke bar after the bar had closed to have a chat with a female customer. Three guys, around eighteen to twenty-five years old, passed by on a black and white Honda Wave motorbike with no number plate. Mr. Phongthep just turned and looked but that caused an angry reaction from the three guys on the motorbike.

They shouted, “Why do you look at me? Do you think you are so cool? You are a gay. I will come back to get you.”

Mr. Phongthep did not say anything in response.

On the evening of 8 August, two of the men from the previous incident, came back on another motorbike, a black and blue Honda Click, with no license plate. The rider wore a full helmet to cover his face. The pillion rider wore a cap that covered his face. The pillion rider pulled out a gun and shot Mr. Phongtehp, who was chatting with a girl, in the face. The shooters immediately rode away. Staff and customers were shocked and horrified. The staff assisted in taking Mr. Phongthep to the hospital and notified the police. Sadly, Mr. Phongthep did not survive the injury and died on the way to the hospital.

Police inspected the record from a CCTV camera which was installed in front of the bar and clearly spotted the face of the shooter. Police around the city have been searching for the perpetrators, but have not been successful up to this point. Police initially assumed that there may have been some sort of jealousy or flirting regarding the girl that caused the altercation. A police artist has already sketched pictures of the criminals and will attempt to find and arrest them as soon as possible.
