“Yesterday (Dec 24) police followed Suriya, a friend of Adisorn, and carried on a search at a house in Moo 11 in Thepkrasattri. Suriya was found in possession of a rifle and five bullets,” Gen Teeraphol added.

“Suriya told us that that he and Adisorn planed to shoot Roamat and Panilada, because Adisorn has personal conflict with Mr Roamat. Adisorn asked Suriya to shoot Roamat. Suriya has known Roamat before. Adisorn took Suriya from Suriya’s house on a motorcycle. Suriya took a rifle which is belong to his father and put a rifle in a guitar bag,” Gen Teeraphol explained.

“Adisorn and Suriya were heading to Ms Panilada’ s rental house. Panilada is Roamat’s girlfriend. They saw that Roamat went to Panilada’s house. They were waiting in rubber tree field for about 15 minutes. When Suriya saw Ms Panilada and Roamat exit out of a Soi, Suriya fired two shots at them and sped away. Suriya put a rifle back at the same place where he took from his father,”  Gen Teeraphol noted.

“Police took two days to find Suriya. Suriya was charged with attempted murder and murder. We also found that Suriya had another case of attempted murder in Thalang in the past. He was also found to have two arrest warrants issued against him in two previous cases,”  Gen Teeraphol added.

“Police are now searching for Adisorn who has so far managed to escape apprehension,” he conlcluded.

My goodness, where to find 11 high ranking police officers for a photo shoot on a Sunday?  Obsessive.

Rifle from father. Legal possession?
Another murder attempt in the past?
Already 2 (!) arrest warrants on that person?
Some police authority didn't do his job on this criminal. 
Who of the 11 police officers on the photo is that?
