Pattaya, 24 October 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 5.00 am Pattaya Police investigator, Lieutenant Colonel Anun Thammachaikun, was notified of a gang shoot out in South Pattaya resulting in the injuries of gang members and an innocent passer-by. A police team and the Sawang Boriboon Foundation were dispatched to the location at the 4th intersection on Sukhumvit Road in the direction of Chon Buri.

At the scene police found 3 injured Thai men who were transferred to Banglamung Hospital for treatment. Wasan Janthong [30] had a shot wound on his right leg and severe cuts to his neck. Phisut Lailuen [19] was seriously injured with shot wounds on his back and waist. Wutthikorn Klangromklang [14] had a minor shot wound on his left eyebrow.

Police were also informed of a fourth victim, Miss Lamyai Wongya [26], who had been shot in the right leg. She had already been sent to Pattaya Memorial Hospital by a relative before the officers arrived.

On further examination of the scene, police kept as evidence 3 spent .38 cartridge shells, and one unused .38 bullet, which were found on the ground.

Mr. Klangromklang stated that he and his 2 other injured comrades were all riding on one motorbike following a drinking session at a Karaoke venue in South Pattaya. A group of 10 youths on 7-8 motorbikes had followed them and cut them off, upsetting Mr. Klangromklang’s and his friends. So they decided to chase after them along South Pattaya Road and caught up with them at the South Pattaya 4th intersection on Sukumvit Road. There then ensued a quarrel and fighting broke out between the two groups.

He went on to explain that one of the opposition then pulled a gun and shot Mr. Lailuen after which the other gang then fled the scene. Subsequently, Mr. Klangromklang and his friend were trying to take the injured man to hospital, but on the way the same gang had come back to shoot them again. Mr. Klangromklang had crossed the road asking for help from witnesse,s without success, at which point he notified the police.

Miss Wongya, a member of staff at a hotel in Pattaya, revealed that she was riding her motorbike home and just happened to be passing when the shootings occured. She heard the sound of youths fighting and saw both sides had pulled guns and were shooting each other. At that point she felt a pain in her leg and realised she had been shot. She then tried to ride back to her home in Soi Khaotalo, and managed to get to hospital assisted by a relative.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Anun Thammachaikun revealed that he did not trust Mr. Klangromklang’s version of the events. Witness statements indicated that both parties had several members trying to shoot each other following a fight. Police carried out further questioning of the injured youths receiving treatment in hospital, and will continue their investigation to ascertain the truth and instigate the necessary judicial proceedings.
