Mongkol said Khum-Tui was booked at the temple for 10 nights through Nov. 23. Two days before their stint began, he said, unknown gunmen had shot inside the temple. He said he believed the latest shootings were connected to that, as he said he didn’t know of any reason someone would shoot at his band while it was on stage.
