And regrettably, there will be more of these kinds of incidents to follow.

The tragic and sad incident at the Mall in Korat has taken the Cork out of a bottle.

These things go on in a semi regular way. I think there were two fatal shootings and two fatal stabbings in shopping malls locally in the couple of years I stayed in Nonthaburi.

 

Either way it is just another senseless tragedy that has destroyed another family no doubt.

Hopefully there will be CCTV everywhere so tracking the shooter down should be accomplished quickly.

Gun crime in Thailand due to the easy availability of weapons to 'children' has always been an issue, just been elevated of late because of the horrific incident in Korat.
