A man has been arrested following a shooting incident at a shopping mall in Bangkok.

 

Police were called to Central Plaza Rattanathibet in Nonthaburi at around 4pm on Thursday following reports of gunfire.

 

Videos posted to social media showed people fleeing the scene. 

 

A man was later arrested.

 

 

There were no reports of any injuries or deaths.

 

According to Sanook, the incident was the result of a domestic dispute the man was having with his wife, who had been working inside the mall.

 

The man turned up at his wife’s place of work and fired between 2 and 6 shots into the air. 

 

Photos posted on Twitter later showed the man in custody.

 

 

The incident comes just weeks after a gunman killed 29 people and wounded 58 in a mass shooting at Terminal 21 in Korat.

I guess the dispute with the police and the court will be much more worse.

what you need is specially trained armed response units able to rapidly react to situations such as this, many major cities have them, though i doubt bangkok does.

Yes also many airports have them but in thailand i have never seen them on suvarnabhumi.

 

But the security guards in the thai malls are a complete laugh...skinny old men from 45 kg...they would need 10-20 of those to stop me if i am really angry...

 

And there are loads of guns in Thailand....everywhere..

And again ALL the security "guards" were useless...it's time they get armed and have a license to kill any shooter in any mall.

I find the NRA to be hard work. The fact that they always think the answer is more guns.

 

After Sandy Hook happened, the NRA said, and I quote, “None of this would have happened if the teachers had guns.” I think they’re forgetting what school was like. Does anyone remember that casual teacher that used to fall apart whenever she came into school, that relief teacher came, you and your friends would see her and go, “Oh, we’re gonna make her cry.” And then she’d stand in front of the class with a bit of chalk and her hands would be shaking, and you’d go, “You’re never getting married, are you, Miss? Never gonna happen for you.” Then she’d get back to her 1967 Volkswagen Beetle, and she’d be crying over the steering wheel, just, “Why don’t they like me?” Let’s give that girl a gun and see how things work out!

 

And then they go, “Oh, well, answer to that, we’ll just add more guns.” They go, “We’ll put an armed security guard at every school across America.” Yeah, that’ll work out. The average security guard in America earns $16 an hour. Not a lot of wiggle room to be a hero! Someone comes onto the school and… [Mimicking machine gun] And you’ve got Kevin. Now, I’m sure Kevin’s damn-hot at Call of Duty, but it might not quite cut it, ladies and gentlemen.

Now replace Kevin with Somchai on THB300 a day.

Who need shooting ranges when you have shopping malls.

Sounds better more authentic

....why not put soldiers at the doors for a year or so? 

They've got nothing else to do why not?

They'd be stuck in traffic, unfortunately. 

Need a helicopter.
