CCTV footage has emerged of the fight that led to the fatal shooting of a French tourist on Wednesday morning. 

 

The footage shows Senior Sgt-Maj Kantapong Huadsri, 49, involved in a fistfight with a 41 year old Frenchman.

 

The location is believed to be outside the Lucky Shot bar in Soi 11/1 and the time shows 7.17am. 

 

Daily News said that Kantapong - now given the name "Lerm" in the Thai media - was knocked down and was clearly losing the fight when he pulled out a gun.

At least one shot appears to be fired at this first scene as the French man flees for his life. 

 

The Frenchman was later shot two times in the chest and head outside Dunkin' Donuts at the Trendy Building in Soi 13. 

 

This was also caught on CCTV

 

Daily News also reported that no relatives attempted to post bail for the suspect who has admitted murder.

 

He was ordered held for a 12 day period until December 23rd when he will appear in court again. 

 

He is being held at Bangkok Special Prison. 

 

Prosecutors opposed bail on the grounds of flight risk due to the serious nature of the crime.

Interesting, You see  when the foreigner runs off, the cop stops for a moment, then goes after him. I wonder who said what to provoke him to follow? In that instant both peoples fate was sealed.

At that moment when he stopped, it was the last moment his life and the other guy life has changed for ever, that moment it was the last clear thoughts of sanity going through his minds, fight or flight.. alas, he decided to go ahead and get his revenge and humiliations paid for...

After presumably a full night of drinking by both men, I doubt clear thoughts were in either of their minds. Evidenced by the shooting, plus the victim coming to a walk only a few seconds after being shot at. Most sane people would run a mile and not stop. I know I would!

 

Agreed it's a very permanent solution to a pretty pathetic problem though

At 0:52 it looks like he is given the gun and then at 0:55 take a shot at the French man who is running away and then what could be  another shot at 0:56  He then pursues him with gun in hand and they disappear of screen bottom left.

Discharging a firearm in a public place followed by premeditated murder.

 

It's hardly self defense when when he pursues  an unarmed man with a loaded weapon with obvious intent to kill him.

I hope public opinion alone will ensure he does not get away with this no matter who he is or who he is friends with .  

 

Disagree. 

 

From :22 - :27 Green shirt guy is trying to pass off the pistol. 

 

From :25 - :31 he is picking up the gun from the gutter. 

 

From :40 - :45 its the shooter flashing the gun from his waistband at the frenchman. 

 

At :52-:54 he takes the pistol out of his waste-band and pops his first shot. 

 

Could happen to any foreigner that disputes the bill.
