Police in Chantaburi rushed to the courts of justice at 9.05am on Tuesday (November 12) after reports of a shooting during a hearing. There they discovered five injured, four men and one woman, including the shooter. They were all rushed Prapokklao Chanthaburi Hospital where two of the male victims later died.

 

Deputy police spokesman, Kritsana Pattanacharoen said the shooter had fired at another party during the announcement of the verdict on the inheriting of a family estate.

 

Kritsana said that the police had arrested the suspect and will investigate how he managed to smuggle the gun into the courtroom.

Seems to be a problem here with getting guns into the court buildings. Second time in 2 weeks; granted the earlier case involved shackled suspects which to me would be slightly more serious. if it wasn't for the two dead men in the latter case.

Seems to be no problem with getting most types of armourment into almost any government building here.
Years ago things called " metal detectors " were invented. I believe there are some working models at Suvarnabhumi, maybe the powers that be might like to have a day out to go and see them.

What could possibly go wrong !!

I guess he wasn’t happy with the ruling

A pathetic and flippant post that masks itself behind brevity.

And that he probably knew how it might go, hence being armed and ready.

The judge settled it but not with his approval so bang bang Thai style !

Had some recent personal experience with courts.  There are security guards and walk thru metal detectors at all entry points.  It was entirely optional whether you chose to walk through them.
