UPDATE: Police are now searching for a black Mitsubishi Triton pickup truck without license plates, which pulled alongside the victim's vehicle when the shooting occurred. Police have yet to obtain descriptions of the gunman or the driver.

PHUKET: -- A woman driving alone south of Phuket Town was killed by a single gunshot to head this evening.

Police arrived at the scene, at the junction of Kwang Road and Chao Fa West Road (map here), soon after 8pm.

The victim was driving a white Chevrolet Captiva when the execution was carried out. Police have yet to release details of the woman’s identity, but she is believed to have been travelling northbound when the attack occurred.

Rescue workers at the scene confirmed that woman was killed by a single shot to the head through driver’s side window.

After the attack, the vehicle continued at speed and came rest only after crashing into a street lamp by the side of the road.

Police at scene are contending with a crowd of onlookers gathered at the site.

At latest report, police have blocked northbound traffic along Chao Fa West Road, a major road linking the southern beach areas of Phuket with Phuket Town and the airport, in order to search for the bullet casing.

Motorists are urged to avoid the area.

Tonight's murder comes while hundreds of officers have been posted on the island to boost safety in Phuket through a 30-day blitz on crime

Another day on the island of crime and death.

Of course, this happens at every top holiday destination in the world.

(Had to say that or this may turn into another Phuket bashing thread).

RIP poor lady.

Its the way people get ahead in business.

Eliminate the competition.

Yes, but it could also be from a failed relationship.

Yes, the top 2 reasons to call in the hit man - love and/or business ie money.

RIP the unlucky lady.

And after 30 days?

Actually, I believe that it was 100 in Phuket (400 between various tourist orientated areas including Phuket, Pattaya etc). Taking shifts into account, there's unlikely to be any more than 25 extra policemen on duty at any one time, then divide them between the various areas (unless they're working as mobile checkpoints/search teams. Not going to make significant differences, and certainly not to crimes of this nature.
