Mae Ramad police in the north western Thai province of Tak were called after two people were shot dead and a woman was gravely injured, reported Thai Rath.

 

At the bloodstained scene in a one story house in a densely populated area there were many relatives and gawkers gathered outside.

 

By the door shot in the neck was the first victim. She was 78 year old La

 

Draped over the dead body and grievously injured from shots to the arm and chest was 48 year old Thanaphat, the daughter of the first victim..

 

He feet were secured with police issue handcuffs.

 

She was taken to a local hospital then transferred to Mae Sot where she remains in a critical condition.

 

Nearby in the living room was 64 year old Wichian. He'd been shot in the temple.

 

A shotgun was recovered.

Kaew, 82, the husband of La, said that Wichian was a former cop who retired a few years ago.

 

He and his wife had been married for many years and had raised a son in a house next door.

 

On Sunday they had been drinking at an ordination. He said his son in law had had mood swings recently and suspected his attractive wife was having an affair. 

 

When they got back from the ordination he handcuffed her legs making it impossible for her to move. 

 

The mother in law tried to intervene in the argument and was shot dead on the spot. Then Wichian shot his wife before turning the gun on himself. 

 

Police accepted this version of events.

Many times this seems to be a part of family shootings, or friends .....

Well I guess that sorted everything out then?

He should have started the shots from the end.

 

RIP

Is ' Shotgun ' just a term used as a discriptive for any hand held weapon or are we actually talking about a 12 bore ? More than a subtle difference.

Violence here is off the charts, with people murdered over nothing. Three reports of extreme violence in just one newsletter today. And a while ago a lad was shot dead in our village by a farmer for simply stealing a couple of apples off a tree. And two days ago a music festival held in the grounds of the local school was ended hours early after someone had a gun and ammunition there.

Keep gun away from these loons....and Booze as well....

Gun probably came as a freebie with the gold watch when he retired as a cop!

If I had shot my mil, my wife would be critical too....with some justification, perhaps.!

Simple divorce is so much more elegant and dignified. Such losers. Obviously things did not work out. Real men just walk away.

The only good news here is he killed himself and won’t be back on the streets in 5 years to kill again because he wouldn’t have received death penalty that he deserved.

Nope. Police  buy their own guns

And are they legally permitted/licensed to retain them (or even sell them) after leaving the force ? Serious question.
