A teenager in Pathum Thani shot herself dead in her bedroom after her parents criticized her for spending all her time on social media on her phone. 

 

"A" sneaked out and got her father's .38 gun and went back to her room. There she appears to have shot twice. 

 

One bullet was found in the ceiling. The second was between her eyebrows. 

 

She left her final words on Facebook in Thai. She said: "Sorry for everything. Sorry for those left behind. Sorry"

 

The girl was in M4 at a local school indicating that she was about 15 years of age. 

 

Pol Col Panyaphat Dechachotphisit of the Pratunam Chulalongkorn police said that the parents had told him that they had criticized their daughter for spending all her time on her phone on social media. 

 

Police are checking whether the gun was licensed. 

 

An autopsy is being held at Thammasat Chalermprakiat Hospital.

Yikes. More to the parents berating her than just criticizing. Social media is out of control on another level. Needs to be a balance of time taught.

All guns, any gun should be kept in a secure gun cabinet when not in the possession of the owner.  That owner should have the key to the gun cabinet in his/her possession all the time.

 

So sad - RIP

A tragic awful situation.

How will the parents ever get through this needless suicide?

Yes I would blame her father too, if the gun had been locked up there would not be a problem. Guns have no place lying around in a house.

No point having a gun if it isn't loaded and readily available.

Subject is suicide, and I'm guessing no gun would have just led her to try another way.

That was a serious addiction, where death appeared worse than a bit less facebook time.
