The weapon used for the killing was confirmed as a 9mm handgun.

“We are looking for these guys. All police have been alerted, and Phang Nga Police have also already been informed in case these men attempt to come to Phuket,” Col Akanit said.

“For us, we are keeping a special eye out at Phuket International Airport as we believe they might attempt to board a flight from here.

“Also, we are investigating their connections in Phuket, including friends or any other associates they might have here,” he added.
