Police cordoned off the area, which is not far from the Royal Thai Police Office in the same district. Media reported that a man began firing shots out of his shop around 4am.

A witness said he was sitting nearby with friends when he heard shots from the rooftop of the two-storey shop. One shot was fired in the direction of his group, which immediately dispersed.

Police said a man aged about 40 was firing shots into the air. They eventually calmed him down and at 10:40am he was taken to Pathumwan Police Station. They quoted the man as saying that he was stressed out by family problems. No one was injured.

Oh, that was nice. A crazy/idiot person is in possession of a gun, has family problems fired shots, in a busy tourist area, and no one was hurt. So, Will he admitted in a mental institution for the next 10 years? Did not read or he has a arm certification to fire dozens of bullets around. So, what is next with him?
