Police were called to the scene, better known for more than a decade just as “Soi Sip-Et” (“Street 11”) and its seedy nightlife and prostitution, at 10:40am.

No people were reported as injured in the shooting, but police have detained three men for questioning.

The three men were reportedly sitting at a table drinking alcohol when one of the men pulled out a gun and fired it.

Phuket City Police have yet to release more details about the incident.

One bullet casing was recovered at the scene.

Forensic Police were present to investigate the scene this morning.

@Galong . Prostitution in Thailand ? Nooo. We hear always from officials there is no prostitution in Thailand.How can that be ? Pfft.

Prostitution is illegal in Thailand.  Perhap the DSI should investigate how and why this area goes untouched by the cops. [tongue planted in cheek as we can guess why]
