Gun crime is now a daily occurrence and even though the police are trying to control it – it sometimes backfires.
This was the case at 7.30pm on July the 13th at the Red Horse Resort where police tried to mount an undercover operation to buy an illegal handgun.
However when the police identified themselves it turned out that the two perpetrators were well armed and fired at the police, one office sustained a bullet wound to his leg and the police fired back killing 22 year old Surachart Kaewchingduang and 17 year old Arit Wangweng.
The haul of guns, ammunition and drugs are confiscated by the police.
It turned out that these men were not just dealers in handguns as the police found 1,000 methamphetamine tablets and 2 bags of the drug known as Ice in Surachart trouser pockets.
