Man dies in unprovoked shooting


At 1am on August the 9th police officers went to the scene of another shooting in Pattaya this time it was at a liquor stall on Sukhumvit highway in Jomtien.

18 year old Vichit Tavichai had been shot and was rushed to Bangkok Hospital Pattaya, however he died from his injuries with his distraught mother and relatives in the room with him.

The dead man’s mother is consoled at the news of her son’s death.

Vichit’s younger brother Somchai told police that they were enjoying drinks at the liquor stall when a group of teenagers on three motorbikes started throwing soda bottles at them then fled towards Sattahip, however not long after that the gang returned this time they opened fire at them and two of the bullets hit Vichit.

Police are doing their best at building up a description of the gang, but sadly it seems that drinking in Pattaya after dark could cost you your life.
