Early reports suggest both children and adults have been killed in the attack.

 

More than 30 people have been killed in a mass shooting at a children’s day-care centre in a northeastern province of Thailand, a police spokesperson said.

 

Victims included both children and adults, police said in a statement on Thursday, adding that the gunman was an ex-police officer and a manhunt was underway.

 

The prime minister has alerted all agencies to take action and apprehend the culprit, a government spokesperson said.

A former policeman opened fire in a nursery in the northeastern province of Nong Bua Lam Phu, killing at least 35 people, mostly children, police reported as of 3pm.

 

Police said the gunman, identified as Panya Kamlarb, was armed with a shotgun, a pistol and a knife when he barged into the nursery which is located in the office of the Uthai Sawan Tambon Administration in Na Klang district at around 12.10pm.

 

Pol Maj Gen Paisal Luesomboon, deputy commander of Region 4 Police, told Thai PBS in a phone interview that the gunman was apparently under the influence of drugs. Paisal said the gunman is a former policeman who was discharged last year on charge of drug abuse.
