PATTAYA – January 16, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 1:45 a.m., a report of shots being fired in a dispute between two teen gangs was received by Pol. Sub. Lt. Noppadol Inthasorn, Deputy Inspector, Banglamung police station. The incident occurred at the intersection behind Wat Tharmsamakkee, south Pattaya Moo 10 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung.

At the scene in front of a duck noodle restaurant, police saw about 10 teens running away in different directions. Their gang had been shot at, but no one was injured. Several teens only had scratches on their bodies. Police inspecting the nearby area found traces of many bullet holes in several Pattaya campaign posters

Police questioned “Mr. Hanoi,” age 16, about the shooting incident. He told police that he and a big group of friends were cruising around Pattaya on motorbikes. When they were in the area of central Pattaya, they encountered three teen boys from a rival gang.

Two of the rivals were brothers, nicknamed “Mr. Oat” and “Mr. Off.” They were in a black car with their friend “Mr. Belt.” Their souped-up black car had been modified to drive at high speeds. But Mr. Hanoi did not know the car’s brand or model, or license plate number.

The rivals then challenged each other to fight, and made an appointment to meet behind Muang Pattaya 7 school. Mr. Hanoi and 20 friends then went to wait at the appointment point, to clear the problem.

But the rival gang did not show up. So Mr. Hanoi’s gang consulted with each other what to do next. Then a black car approached the group and stopped about 50 meters away. One of the teens in the car used a rifle to fire four shots at Mr. Hanoi’s gang. No one was hit by the bullets.

After gathering evidence, police assumed that the cause of the beef was a love affair problem. The police informed the radio dispatcher to alert police units to watch for the suspects along the escape routes their car may had taken. But there was no trace of them.

The police detained the teen victims to investigate further. A detective police team was also assigned to track down the gang with the gun shooter. The two rival gangs know each other well, because they all live in Tharmsamakkee community, so police think they will be able to arrest the suspects soon.
