Shooting in Terminal 21 Korat.

Recommended Posts

I am getting reports of a mass shooting in the Terminal 21 shopping mall in Korat City Centre.

 

Up to now there are 10 dead and the killer /s  have escaped into town.

 

I am hearing also that they started a fire in the mall.

 

I am trying to get in touch with my wife at the moment who is always in there shopping with my 16 month old son. Anyone hear any more details>?

 

RIP to those who have lost their lives, I hope my wife answers her phone soon, i am pulling my hair out here.

From the news it seems incidents were other locations and lastly he fled into the "Terminal ". He seems to have some sort of maybe automatic weapon and driving a humvee.

It says at first he shot 2 other soldiers dead. Then it says he shot one person and injured a policeman. Presumably 3 dead? But not many facts. On Facebook it shows people taking cover in closed shops inside the building. He seems to be somewhere in Terminal 21 and started a fire also.

I hear that he popped some friends and others in CQ (sic) Korat which is just down the main road from the city and then traveled to the city and went crazy at Terminal 21 starting a fire and killing more.

Just announced "closing the area" within a 2km radius of Terminal 21. Asking everyone in that area to remain indoors.

Notice from police and govt. officials.

 

The post I just translated about closing the area seems to have disappeared so maybe some confusion.
