Police were called to a dirt road in Cha-Am near in the Bo Khaem Canal - Huay Sai Tai area after two men were shot. 

 

Phon, 44, was given CPR but was dead from a gunshot wound to the chest. 

 

Suwat, 17, was shot in the ribs and taken to hospital in Cha- Am then transferred to Petchaburi. 

 

An 80 cm sword, a scythe and three catapults were recovered along with a Thai made shotgun.

Satheuan, the mother of the shooter said that the two men arrived to make trouble with her sons. They had a long running feud.

 

They started aiming at each other with stones from catapults. Then the other men got knives. 

 

So her son got a gun and shot them.

 

Nopparat then fled into the woods. 

 

Cha-Am police are looking for him, reported 77kaoded.

That cop on the left did a shocking job at pointing at the body, he put no "heart" into it. I give his pointing skill a 3/10 at best.

Never bring a catapult to a gun fight

I was thinking of a catapult being like a siege machine to hurl objects over walls. Like when we would use them to launch pumpkins in the US after Halloween. Of course tbey would be catapulted 50 to 75 yards before exploding upon hitting the ground.

catapults

When did slingshots become "catapults"?  Oh, I see it's a UK term.

The Wild West may have been history, but it's on the way to repeating itself. Who ah!!

Terrible, however, the writer needs to understand the difference between a catapult and a slingshot.

In Thailand, "slingshot" translates to หนังสติ๊ก (catapult) and visa-versa.
(หนังสติ๊ก translates to "catapult" or "sling".)
