Col Akanit Danpitaksarn, a Deputy Commander of the Phuket Provincial Police, confirmed to The Phuket News this afternoon that all police on the island have been alerted to be on the lookout for the two men.

The suspects were named as Phoomporn Chartpranom, 48, and Kriangsak Pianchai, 35.

The men are wanted for shooting dead Theprit Sae-aong, 35, in front of Zeed Pub in Ranong Town.

In CCTV video footage, Theprit is arguing with Kriangsak, then Phoomporn is seen walking up to Theprit and shooting him once point blank in the head.

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.

Good example of what Thai males are capable of, lawless with easy access to firearms, completely immature and no thought of consequence, absolutely no morals whatsoever, will probably never get caught and do it again and again, scum, welcome to Thailand.
