Phuket gas delivery teenager shot

PHUKET: -- A teenager delivering cooking gas in a three-wheel motorbike was shot on Kra Rd, Phuket Town, this morning.

Vachara Tathaptip, 19, was rushed to Vachira Phuket Hospital with a bullet wound to the left chest after he was shot while crossing the Kar Jan bridge near Suzuki Plaza at about 10am.

Luckily, none of the gas bottles he was delivering was hit.

His mother, Sunan Tathaptip, 56, who rushed to the hospital to be with him, looked shocked as she told The Phuket News, “My son has never had any disputes with anyone else.”

A friend, who asked not to be named, agreed. “I have no idea who could have done this,” he said.

Doctors are still treating him, but said that his life is not in danger. So far nothing is known about his attacker, but police are investigating.

not to get completely off topic but you need a very big gun with armour piercing bullets to blow up a gas tank ( proofed by mythbusters)

hope he will make a full recovery

poor kid - BUT no disputes with anyone ever?????

Is entirely possible. He is after all, just a teenager, and working for a living to boot.

Poor kid - what mongrel would take a shot at a teenager for nothing - and it may have actually been an attempt to hit one of the gas tanks.

Luckily if the police catch the bastard, the charge is attempted murder.

I hope they do.

According to another news source which can’t be mentioned, due to rule # something. Police now believe it may have been related.

ditto. It doesn't take an armor piercing shell to penetrate 1.8mm of cold-rolled steel.

Mythbusters? Please, don't make me laugh.
