While they were riding along the street the unknown assailant appeared on a motorbike with a firearm – size and type unknown – and shot at the couple and fled, he said.

“After investigating the scene, police found a red Phuket-registered Honda Wave belonging to the victims at the scene. However, no bullet casings were found,” said Col Somphong.

“The motorbike was brought to Thalang Police Sation to be kept as evidence. Thalang Police investigators have begun reviewing CCTV footage from the area to find out where the suspect went in order to proceed with legal action,” he said.

“We suspect that the reason for the attack was due to a personal conflict or other related issue. However, we must wait for the results of the investigation,” Col Somphong added.

Here we are not in America. We are in Thailand.
To 'soften' the thai problems by derailing attention to other parts of the world is not helping Thai society.

Sometimes I ask myself: What is/was the upbringing of these, mostly young, assailants?

Angry, than deliberately go out for a kill?
That it is, if one goes out with a gun.

Wow... another genius deduction, “We suspect that the reason for the attack was due to a personal conflict or other related issue."  Only 17 years old...my god.  There is only one thing that is certain, and that is that life is cheap in the LOS.
