Mother and son killed, father injured in Phetchaburi market shooting

A clothes vendor and his mother were shot and killed while his father was injured following a dispute with another vendor at a roadside market in Phetchaburi's Khao Yoi district early on Saturday.

 

Police said the shooting took place at about 5.30am at the Nong Prong market in Moo 5 village in Tambon Nong Prong.

Police said Sitthichoke Losong, 24, was shot dead at the market while his mother, Supassaras Khamthim, 43, died later at the Phra Chom Klao Hospital.

 

Sitthichoke was shot twice in the chest and once in his right arm.

 

Police are hunting for a another vendor, identified only as Nui, who allegedly shot the three.

 

Other vendors said Nui and Sitthichoke, who had stalls facing each other, often quarrelled.

 

In the latest dispute, Sitthichoke's parents joined him in a verbal dispute with Nui before the parents left and the two vendors continued their heated quarrel.

 

During the heat of the dispute, Nui pulled out his gun and shot Sitthichoke who tried to run away but collapsed about 20 metres later. Nui then shot the mother, who was standing nearby, and shot Sitthichoke's father, who was sitting in his pickup truck nearby.

Depends. 

 

He may have a copper in the family or a spare 50k laying around.

This thread was opened 21 hours ago, and no posts supporting gun control?

If this article had been about a shooting in the US, would already have been plenty of posts from expat liberals calling for a ban on all firearms.

 

Would have been a good time for Sitthichoke and his parents to have had a gun of their own.

No, I just don't believe 90% of the folks that are so racist they can't think straight. I also believe a lot of what is translated from Thai publications is is tweaked to raise it's sensationalism angle, the goal to make a Thai visa version of the british gossip rag.

True.. but unfortunately there are Thais who think like this and are so crazy. Just like we got a lot of foreigners here on the forum who think only Thais are criminals and white skinned people never commit crimes.

 

It works both ways, i consider myself far from a racist, but when i first came to Thailand my brother lost his phone and a GF of mine helped me. The police officer started to ask her why she helped foreigners and how Thais should only help Thais. Worse still the guy was drunk and started threatening her. The other police in the station later came to apologise.. but seemed not to care he was drunk and acting out like that.. or at least not take action. So there certainly are xenophobic Thais just like there are plenty of foreigners who are the same.

I agree, there are Thais that stereotype us. But which of us has had the educational advantage? IMHO knowing that a behavior is intellectually wrong and still acting in that manner is really being moronic. With our western advantages in schooling and our ability to search/learn via the internet in English (which is huge), we definitely should know better. After that a lot it comes from how we are raised, and as I have viewed it there's a lot of people that were brought up very poorly- products of substandard parenting.
