Maj. Gen. Thanet said the incident should remind officers that they have to be more careful when performing their duties, especially when they are out detaining teenage bikers and that they should always take back up.
The officer stated that they have strong evidence that the shooter may have been a 22 year old Surachart Kaewchingduang also known as Tum a Naklua resident who had committed many crimes including suspected murder, drug dealing, physical harassment, and now shooting a police officer.
The court is issuing an arrest warrant for this young hoodlum.
