KANCHANABURI: -- Dramatic pictures show the moment when a desperate drug fugitive takes his own wife hostage when cornered by police.

 

Seconds later after he fired at cops a decision was made to take him down - he was shot in the back multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene, reported Daily News.

 

His wife was also hit but survived.

 

The dramatic shootout played out at a rented house in the Tha Maka district of Kanchanaburi on Tuesday when 100 police and soldiers found where Suthiporn Klinhorm, 26, was hiding.

 

Earlier on Sunday he had escaped from custody in a safe house where he was being held after his arrest for having 25,000 Ya Ba pills. 

 

He had grabbed a Glock 16 from a soldier when the military man was distracted and made good his escape with another man called Chalermphon Jitniyom, 25.

 

Police tracked down Chalermphon to Kamphaeng Saen after information was received from relatives and close associates and this ultimately led to Suthiporn.

 

He was hiding out with his brother in law and was with his wife too when the large force of cops and soldiers cornered him. 

 

Cops tried to talk him out and persuade him to give himself up but in the end he grabbed a gun and took his own wife hostage aiming shots at police in a bid to escape justice again.

 

A SWAT team shot him many times in the center of his back with the bullets emerging through his chest. His wife was hit in the right leg and lost the middle finger on her right hand. She was seriously hurt.

 

A police investigation by top brass officers has begun.

One wonders what training the soldier had having his pistol taken away in the safe house,

then you think about SWAT , does that mean special weapons and tactics, who"s skill in placing single shots away from the centre mass,

it all just seems to be a bit cowboy-ish,

I'm no military expert but shouldn't a good sniper be able to shoot a targrt without riddling the human shield with bullets.

Their seeming incompetence has by the reports' words seriously injured this poor lady.

And by all accounts what preceeded this disgraceful incident is farcical to put it mildly

a SWAT, or a blowfly-by-night team?

 

lucky if she didn't get a leg shot in the main artery

 

 

 

and she's lucky to have some spare fingers, to point with in the photoshots

Lost a finger and got shot in the leg. That'll teach here not to get taken hostage in the future.

 

SWAT my rear end.  They had two choices...keep their heads down or take out the gunman and hostage. I suppose evaluating the risk to the hostage, when they were aiming in her direction, was beyond them. And they say students aren't capable of critical thinking

Straight out of an evening soap.
