The violence erupted at the Camp Beer pub in tambon Bo Phut around 2am, said Lt Ratthakarn Chanwong, a duty officer at Bo Phut police station.

The shooting left seven men wounded – three policemen from Bo Phut station and four pub staff. All were rushed to hospitals, where two were later pronounced dead. They were Lt Corp Jaerasak Sroisangvarn and Kraisorn Mingsakul, a guard at the pub.

The other five with bullet wounds were identified as Lt Corp Sitthisak Ngamkhom, Lt Corp Kritsana Boonyin, pub guard Voravit Yimyong, pub manager Thepthinnakorn Thongphet and pub waiter Veerapong Jarusenee.

Police investigators reported that seven policemen attached to Bo Phut Police Station were having a night out at the pub.

While dancing they became involved in a brawl with a group of young men. Security guards intervened and asked them to leave.

After emerging from the bar, Lt Corp Jaraesak pulled out a pistol. The pub manager tried to stop him and then chaos then erupted.

Another policeman, identified later as Lt Corp Narongsak Khamjai, fired shots from his 9mm pistol into the crowd gathering in front of the pub. The bullets hit three fellow policemen and four pub staff, including the manager. After the shooting he drove off in his car.

Police sent to the scene found bloodstains and six spent cartridges in the parking lot of the pub.

CCTV footage which showed Lt Corp Narongsak opening fire at the crowd. He was later caught and arrested on charges of murder, attempted murder and carrying a weapon in a public area.

Kurt...your story writing is just that...a story. What has the shooting by a few rouge cops got to do with coruption?...nothing. They could have been anyone.

Swerv: Yes!  It has to do with the continuing story of a dysfunctional situation of the RTP on Phuket.
Corruption, as you could read in my story writing. 
This shooting drama. And the shooting drama outside a bar at Patak road Chalong ( drunk police officer killed a working bar waitress at 4 AM).
And there is much more what we can read on and of. Right?

Your writing:.."Who cares what happened to a bar in Rawai".. shows a bit how you feel about RTP corruption.

Many care about a fine of 20,000 thb, which get lowered to 5000 thb, but after payment to Police, no payment recu. 
Yes, we should care!
Specially as there are crimes with lost of life's and people get hospitalized what can be punished with just a 1000 thb only.
Bus accidents on Phuket, for example.

Kurt: It is very easy for people to get confused with your writing, i sometimes get a headache trying to decipher your child like ramblings. So many times you go off on a tangent with unconnected issues. Who cares what happened to a bar in Rawai, it's nothing to do with this story.

stegee, don't take that part literally, see it figuratively. Ok?
Sorry, I did confused you.  :-)
I thought you would understand the writing.

@kurt you seem a little confused... 
"There were no bar girls to entertain!"  
you don't need an entertainment licence to employ staff- you need an entertainment licence to play copyrighted music in a venue...

Yes Samantha,  thai civilians hate the RTP, not for 'selective' law enforcement, but for their 'site work' to make money.

Here a short story:
A few years ago 2 thai friends, after completing their thai university education did open a small bar in Rawai.
Most of their customers were nearby living foreigners and their thai wives because of the good atmosphere and absence of bar girls. 
They were playing soft music with tapes on a hand carry away radio/tape recorder.
Rawai police came and fined them thb 20,000  ( I repeat: 20,000) for not having a entertainment license.
There were no bar girls to entertain!
Foreign customers did jump in for these hardworking guys who were in their start up phase, and at Police station the 'fine' was reduced to 5000 thb! 
No payment bill was given by police to the 2 boys.
The whole scene was played by police as ... you are lucky that we are willing to do this..  Yes, that are mafia practices.
That is why RTP is hated by thai.

Lets see what happens. The police in Thailand are worse than the mafia. Correction, they are the mafia.

Anyone in Thailand who feels the RTP not needs a real clean up?
Things getting worse in RTP Force.
No weapons on them in free time, specially not when they go to pubs.
I consider that as being the same driving a car after drinking.

I am still shocked by the murder by a drunk Chalong police officer ( shooting from his car) on Patak road Chalong a working terrace waitress at 4AM in the morning.
We never heard anymore about how that police man was convicted.

Alcohol,  guns,  and pseudo police. Not a good mix.
