Police volunteer shot in Nongprue


A police volunteer was injured after being shot in Nongprue.

Sakda Chanchai, 18, suffered a single shot to the chest in front of the J.B. Color Lab on Soi Sukhumvit 59 Jan. 29. He was listed in serious condition at Banglamung Hospital.

Sakda’s friend Sanan Chimwiset, 18, said the victim was sitting on his motorbike waiting for some friends when two youths on a Honda Wave rode by. The pillion passenger fired the shot.

Police speculated the shooters were either the teenager’s enemies or possibly someone the volunteer helped arrest previously. Investigators are reviewing security-camera footage.
