An Australian teacher who was trying to get back together with his Thai girlfriend was shot in the abdomen in the car park of a downtown Chiang Mai apartment on Saturday night.
He had gone to Suphapreuk Court 2 in Suthep sub-district to invite his girlfriend Suphasri, 39, out for Songkran.
Chang Pheuak police were called to the car park of the apartment where they found the victim shot and Suphasri waiting with a 9mm gun in her hand.
The bullet had exited the body of the victim.
Suphasri said that she had known the Australian for two years but after arguments they had split up. He had assaulted her, she said, and she had reported to police twice in recent months about alleged assaults as he tried to reunite with her against her wishes.
This time a serious fight broke out and she pulled out a gun and after firing two warning shots she shot him in the abdomen to defend herself, she told the cops.
She has been detained and police will be interviewing the Australian before deciding how to proceed in the case.
