‘He tried to shoot me again but the gun misfired.’ Worawut Tawee-apiradeeserm receives chicken elixir to help him recover from his bullet wound.

Mr Worawut was hit in the left shoulder with a .38 bullet fired from a homemade “Thai Pradit” gun by Wanchit “DJB” Sonsaree. (See earlier story here.)

Speaking from his bed at Bangkok Hospital Phuket where he is recovering from the bullet wound, Mr Worawut said he was shot because he was caught in the middle of a business dispute over stalls in the Jungceylon mall in Patong – not because of a love triangle.

He explained that “two parties” were arguing over the positioning of a stall inside Jungceylon, and he became involved when he tried to act as umpire.

The negotiations were already tense, with Wanchit on one side backed by five Burmese “who seemed to be acting as his bodyguard”. The dispute grew increasingly intense until Wanchit boiled over, pulled out the homemade gun and shot Mr Worawut.

“He tried to shoot me again,” said Mr Worawut, “but the gun misfired, so then he ran away.”

Wanchit is still in hiding. Initially it was reported that he planned to surrender to police but this has not happened, so Mr Worawut’s family have now offered a reward of B200,000 for information leading to his arrest.
