A 14-year-old girl was injured when a bullet fired into the sky fell through her roof and hit her as she slept.
Raphatsorn Rojjanaphiwat, a student at Pattaya School No. 11, suffered a flesh wound on her knee at her house on Soi Chalermprakist 11 Oct. 15.
Police visited the home two days later and measured the 9mm bullet’s hole in the house’s roof and ceiling, deducting the round had been fired south of her house. However, more complex math was required to determine the bullet’s range and vector. Other investigators will attempt to determine that, with hopes of locating the shooters.
Happy she wasn’t killed, Raphatsorn points to the ceiling where the bullet entered through her roof. Her father doesn’t look so amused.
The girl’s father, Somnuk Rojjanaphiwat, said he was using the computer at home when the accident occurred, but never heard a shot because a neighbor was using a saw outside.
