Naew Na reported that four witnesses have been interviewed after a fatal shooting by a police officer in the car park of a North Pattaya hotel on Friday night. 

 

A chef armed with a knife was shot in the head after apparently resisting arrest.

 

Two patrol officers had responded to calls that a chef with a knife had entered the New Seaview Resort Hotel in Na Klua Soi 18 at 11.40 pm.

 

The man was Prajakchai Siriwech, 35 and the police officers responding were Pol Sgt Rungniran and Pol Cpl Natthawut. 

 

The officers went to the third floor of the hotel but the suspect evaded capture and was found in the car park still armed with a knife. 

 

Naew Na said that Sgt Rungniran ordered the suspect to lay down his knife which he did. As the sergeant moved in to cuff the suspect he picked up the knife again and went for the officer who tried to defend himself with his truncheon. 

 

The officer was hit in the right hand and lost the truncheon that flew off. 

 

The suspect went for the officer with his knife and the sergeant drew his 9 mm gun and shot low but hit the suspect in the head killing him. 

 

The suspect had a conviction for possessing drugs in Bung Kan province in 2012. 

 

A full inquiry interviewing four people at the scene is underway.

I would have liked to have heard what the four witnesses had to say, to see if it confirms the police version we are being given. Aiming low, but actually popping one between the eyes is quite an achievement.

Possible the cop fired far too low, if that were the case then the blame could conveniently be apportioned to a foreigner namely...................

 

Rick O'Shea.

How do you know the chef was charging at the policeman with a knife?

Ohh the policeman said so, when do the police here ever tell the truth?????????

Never, been involved here twice with the police and both times the police involved lied.

It would be interesting to know the witnesses accounts of what went on.

 

 

 

 

 

I see nothing in Naew Na's account to say who their source is, though one might assume that the officer concerned is one source. Maybe Naew Na spoke to the 4 witnesses too. I don't know.

From other reports I have read over the years, the police in Pattaya do try to disarm people with knives without shooting them.
