On 17 October 2007, at 4 AM, Banglamung Investigator Police Major Vinai Ho-ruen was notified by Sawang Boriboon Rescue that two men on a motorbike had crashed into a Muslim restaurant at the T-junction, in front of the railway tracks on Soi Nernplubwan. The men were attempting to escape from two other guys, on a motorbike, who were chasing them. Police rushed to the scene to investigate.
At the scene, police found an orange and gray Honda Wave motorbike, license 575, Chonburi. The motorbike had crashed into a restaurant sign. There was a pool of blood on the street. Sawang Boriboon had already taken an injured man, Mr. Roj (alias) (21) to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital. Mr. Roj had been wounded with a .357 caliber bullet. The bullet entered from the back of his head and lodged in his forehead. He sustained serious injuries and was comatose. Doctors had to transfer Mr. Roj to Chonburi Hospital for surgery, as they had the specialist who could remove the bullet. Mr. Konggrit Tuek-jeen (25), the pillion passenger, had scrapes all over his body and appeared to be very intoxicated.

Mr. Konggrit, who still appeared to be in a drunken state, told police that he and Mr. Roj were returning home after having some drinks at a party on Soi Khao Talo. About two hundred meters down the soi, two men on a motorbike, whom they didn’t recognize, began chasing them. The pursuers pulled out a gun and shouted for them to stop. However, Mr. Konggrit was afraid and told Mr. Roj, the driver, to ride away.

The other two men continued to chase them and shot Mr. Roj in the head. Mr. Roj lost control of the motorbike and crashed into the restaurant sign. Mr. Roj was seriously injured and the motorbike was damaged. The pursuers sped out to Sukhumvit Road. Police are assuming that the victims and perpetrators were involved in some sort of ongoing dispute. They will continue to investigate this incident and, hopefully, apprehend and arrest the attackers in a timely manner.
