Pattaya —A teenager was caught on camera brandishing two firearms at his rivals during a Songkran celebration in Pattaya on the evening of April 15th, 2024. The incident occurred just a few hundred meters from the Pattaya Police Station.


At around 10:06 PM, Pattaya police received a report from a concerned citizen who had captured video footage of the altercation. The video showed a group of teenagers engaged in a verbal dispute before one man, clad in a white shirt and long pants and having a black backpack, pulled out two unidentified firearms and pointed them at the other parties involved.

 

The terrifying incident occurred on Soi Pattaya 7, shockingly less than 500 meters from the Pattaya Police Station. The gun flashing caused widespread panic among the numerous tourists enjoying the Songkran festival at the time. Pattaya police immediately inspected the soi, but no one was willing to provide concrete information to the authorities presumably out of fear of retaliation from the suspect.

 

The police collected CCTV footage from nearby cameras which helped to identify the suspect.

Some idiots just can't control themselves and have a good time without a rear-up

Always ready to fight , teens do not go out unarmed anymore ...

Sometimes I wonder why Thailand has not as many " mass shootings " as the US ?

Yes I recall that now.. outskirts of Pattaya IIRC.

A gun isn't something one would naturally think of to bring into town for the water throwing, well a water pistol perhaps, a plastic bag and your phone. It says they are actually out looking for trouble......

Exactly..... More yet to come.... Two days of celebrations is enough.... Two weeks is just asking for trouble....

TBH, I can't tell whether they are real or water pistols?

 

The linked article says BB guns.  But are they really BB guns (metallic BB's), or are they Airsoft guns (plastic pellets)?

What a novel idea!  Perhaps they could use this approach on the roads soon?

When does the stupidity end?

Last day in Pattaya 19th, although a bit going on down the coast 20th IIRC, maybe Bang Saray and Rayong. Thank heavens, nearly there.
