Drunk Chinese tourist shoots girlfriend dead after playing with Thai VP’s gun

The vice president of the Thai-Chinese trade and industry association told how he had taken a Chinese couple home after a party.  

While he had stopped to urinate by the side of the road he heard a shot ring out.  He returned to the vehicle to find that a very drunk Chinese man called Seng W. had shot his girlfriend San A., 23, in the chest with a 9 mm gun. The bullet exited through her back. He had taken the liberty of playing with the weapon which was kept in a compartment on the second row of seats in the vehicle, said Wichai Manekitikun, 44, the owner of the gun.  

Wichai said that he had been with the couple at the Ping sharkfin soup restaurant in a hotel in the Pathumwan area of central Bangkok.  He offered to take the couple home to a condo in the Rama 3 area. When he reached Soi 43 he got out to urinate in some bushes.  Rushing back to the vehicle he saw a large amount of blood and rushed the injured woman to Nakhon Thon hospital.  She died there later.  When Tha Kham police arrived they found Seng in floods of tears outside the emergency room. An interpreter was called from the Chinese embassy. Seng was very drunk, reported Daily News.  Bang Pong Pang police are investigating as the shooting happened in their jurisdiction.  

The weapon was reportedly legally owned and licenced.
