Four injured in Klong Toey shooting

Four people were injured in a broad daylight shooting at Klong Toey market before noon today.

Tha Rua police said the shooting happened in front of a chicken stall near the Ratchada-Rama 4 intersection.

One man came at the stall where the stall owner identified only as Bank was drinking with three employees after finishing their daily selling work.

The man who police knew only as Sanya drew out a revolver and fired at Bank.

The shots hit Bank on the chest and all the three employees.

All three employees were admitted to Theptarin hospital, while Bank, in serious condition was taken to Chulalongkorn hospital.

Police said either personal or business conflict was the motive of the shooting as vendors at the market said the gunman and Bank had a heated argument before.

Police are now hunting for gunman for trial.
