Capt Warawud Sansop of the Thalang Police was called to Bangkok Hospital Phuket at 10am after 41-year-old Kanokkarn Wisetsak presented herself for treatment.

Doctors safely removed the .22-calibre bullet from her right thigh, and confirmed that the wound was not dangerous. The bullet did not hit any veins or arteries, doctors confirmed.

Mrs Kanokkarn told police that she was walking back to her car after visiting the Ban Tha Ruea market when she felt a sharp pain in her right leg.

“She thought it was just rock that bounced off her leg,” Capt Warawud explained.

“But when she arrived back at her house in Pa Khlok she still felt pain and inspected the wound, and saw that it was still bleeding, and drove herself to the hospital,” he said.

Capt Warawud said police were investigating the shooting.

“We will charge the person with carrying and shooting a gun in public without permission,” he said.
