A 27-year-old Kalasin man was arrested for an alleged gun attack on a fellow-employee at their factory in Samut Prakan province after being told not to smoke in the workplace. The suspect was arrested at 1am on Thursday (May 28).

 

CCTV footage from May 26 showed a man firing a gun at a colleague in the Samut Prakan factory, before the suspect fled the scene.

 

Nattapon Kanhom, 23, was found shot in the right hip. He said the alleged offender, later revealed as Thirawat Thamkantee, tried to shoot him five times.

 

Samut Prakan police came to know that Thirawat would be going see his relatives in Rayong.

 

The officers contacted police in Rayong who chased him to a rubber plantation. It took them two hours to arrest the suspect who was reportedly carrying a gun.

 

He was accused of an attempt to murder and carrying a firearm in a public place without permission and necessity.

If I need a cigarette, it´s not the best idea to criticize me. 😇

 

Why the hell is the idiot carrying a gun in a rubber factory???

Exactly. More and more gun related crimes happening in Thailand. Is gun control soon going to be on the agenda? I can see that happening. In fact, I'd be VERY surprised, if the government doesn't make it more difficult to own firearms soon. Canada reportedly recently introduced some new laws, toughening gun restrictions in the country.

Got to be so careful. Don't get angry when a motorbike beeps you on the sidewalk, when smoke is blown in your face or someone jumps on the BTS before you get off. Stay calm & stay quiet. TIT. (No guns please!)

They are illegal but it´s too easy to bring them to Thailand from the surrounding countries. Also many guns from the military and police are on the market.

Guns have been legal in Thailand since 1947. One in ten people have registered owning a gun.  (Guns are no longer legal for foreigners.)

Right, but the most guns they are used in crimes are not registered.
