The incident occurred about 10pm at Tong 2 pub in Moo 10 village, beside Highway 212 (Ban Phaeng-Nakhon Phanom) in tambon Ban Phaeng.

Mr Paisal was there partying with friends, enjoying the live music, and became dissatisfied with a waiter, winesses told police.

Mr Paisal walked out to his car, parked in front of the pub, and collected a 9mm CZ pistol. He returned inside the pub and then fired eight or nine wild shots, seemingly at random.

Excuse me. Police recommend district office take diciplinary action against him???  Huh? This idiot Kamnan will face the music in a Court in front of a judge, Yes?  So, he goes a few years to jail, and for life banned in any official function. ( the 4 victims could have been killed, that was than murder!)
