Maj Col Natthaya Suwanpong of the Phuket City Police was informed by staff from Mission Hospital at 7:30pm yesterday that a man, named as 21-year-old Thanapon Chusawad, had died while being transported to the hospital following a shooting incident close to British International School, Phuket (BISP).

A friend of the victim, Yutranan Jitchareon, 21, told police that he and Mr Thanapon had gone to an areas close to BISP to discuss with a debt collector a B500 debt they owed.

The debt collector arrived at the meeting point in a white Toyota.

“Mr Yutranan told us that he and Mr Thanapon told the driver of the vehicle that they were unable to pay the B500 debt so he pulled out a gun and shot Mr Thanapon in the left side of his chest. Mr Yutranan and Mr Thanapon ran around to the other side of the car and the driver shot again, this time missing and hitting the car’s side view mirror.

“The driver of the vehicle then sped away along Soi Hanfarang towards Theppkasattri Rd and Mr Yutranan carried Mr Thanapon to their motorbike. They then got a passing motorist to take them to Mission Hospital but Mr Thanapon died of his injuries before arrival,” Maj Col Natthaya said.

Maj Col Natthaya later learned that Mr Thanapon was the son of Sen Sgt Maj Sawai Chusawad an investigating officer based at Patong Police Station.

Police have been told the identity of the shooter and are now hunting for him to question him over the incident.

Eagle: we can only hope.
But it would be too much of a culture shock to him, he prefers to moan and whinge about everything on Phuket so god knows what would happen if he was in a rural area.

Because Swerv,  it are all thai-thai problems.

You still not reacted on my prveious question to you how it is possible that so many drugs and arms are passing by the police station check point at the bridge to Phuket Island.
After you reacted so negatively on my comment regarding.

Don't be to selective in your reactions..as a simple matter that a thai kills a thai for 500 thb only.

I am here as I live in peace with foreign and thai friends, and feel good about it.
I not need corrupt transport mafia, so never a encounter with a tuk tuk driver with a big knife or steel bar.
Not go Bangla Road ( what to do there ?) and get involved in ridiculous knife/gun fights. 
Live my live in thai harmony.  Understand, swerv?  Harmony!
