15-year old accidentally shot dead by warring motorcyclists

BANGKOK: -- A 15-year old trainee working with a satellite dish installation firm was accidentally shot dead as he was travelling in a pickup truck on a ringroad in Bang Chan area, Bangkok suburb, Monday evening.

The victim, Boonyawat Suebsamran, was struck in his forehead by a single shot believed fired from one of two rival motorcyclist groups engaging in a street fight.

The truck driver, Mr Charnchai Sriburi, told Bang Chan police, that he was on his way home with Boonyawat, his assistant, after having finished installing a satellite dish at a house in Soi Onnuj.

He said that as he was about to exit Soi Onnuj he saw from the car’s rear mirror three motorcycles which appeared to be engaged in a chase. Shortly afterward, he heard two gunshots from the group and a crack of the front windshield before Boonyawat collapsed with blood spilling out of his head.

Police said they believed the gunshot was fired by one of the motorcyclists who might engage in a fight.

The victim’s mother, Mrs Saifon, said the victim was the eldest of her three children. Boonyawat quitted school after finishing Mathayom 2 at a school in Si Sa Ket and came to Bangkok and got a job with the satellite dish firm.

She said the victim was the family’s breadwinner and he sent home money every month to support the family.

Sad way to end this young life. Raises up a lot of questions on child labor and that he was "the breadwinner" for a Thai family at the age of 15. Working/living on his own at the mercy of other Thais.

What is wrong with this and other govts and their almost couldn't care less attitude towards the fact the country is awash with firearms ?

We're constantly assured of a purge, crackdown and other buzz words on all sorts of issues yet firearms never get the attention they should.

The current micro-managing PM has his nose into all sorts of issues but guns isn't one of them.

Hardly a great tourist come on knowing upsetting a Thai is likely to get you shot.

I wonder if the parents will be told to go home and make a new one, or not to worry, as they will be back in 30 days & maybe luckier next time.

I wonder what has traumatised and dehumanised you to the extent that you could make such a callous comment.

It's what the Thai police told the parents of Hannah at the trial of the B2 scapegoats.

Rip to this young man.

Yes I do.

I also know that it doesn't matter what has been said in the past by some callous scumbag in a different tragedy.

It doesn't justify repeating it to score points or out of some sense of anger in one such as this.

The problem is, in Thailand, criminal kids walk away with everything.

In western countries the is a law enforcement against these criminal jerks.

Probation,

social public work

Jail....

As long the government does not punish these jerk, it will not stop.

The government is even unable to check on kids riding and racing on motorbikes.
