Pattaya police, rescue and forensic teams rushed to the rear entrance of Pattaya School 8 in Soi 17 Moo 8 yesterday lunchtime after a motorcycle taxi rider was shot in the head and killed around 12 noon. 

 

Dead at the scene was 47 year old Prathum Sa-artnak who was lying across his motorcycle. 

 

He had been shot in the right eye with the bullet exiting the back of the head.

 

An 11mm bullet and casing were recovered at the scene and taken into evidence. 

 

Paritsada, 28, said she had just returned from a trip to Koh Larn and had been taken by the motorcycle taxi rider from the Bali Hai port to the school's rear entrance. 

 

She got off and as she was walking away she heard a shot ring out. She turned to see the shocking sight of the taxi rider shot. After she regained her composure she called the police. 

 

Pol Lt-Col Thammanchit Sitthisat is leading the investigation of what has been called a brazen daylight crime.

 

No reason has yet been given but everything is being considered including the possibility of gambling or other debts.

Shocking and brazen.... presumably followed from Bali Hai and cameras (if working) could be reviewed.

When I lived there I saw a guy shot in the head while he was driving. It was at night though. It was the first murder I had seen. The rest of the deaths I have seen here have all been on the road.

Perhaps another driver who felt his fare had been taken from him.

The real question is, how did the perpetrator know exactly where the guy was going to be? Did he follow them.

I'd have thought that the real question is "whodunnit?".
