Sitting nearby was a crying girl, 17 year old Amphawan Suknin a M5 (Year 12) student at Thepsarin School. She was being driven to school on her elder brother’s bike.
She had been hit in the hip by two bullet fragments from the same .38 gun that had been used to kill Mongkhon.
The student’s brother told police that he had heard three shots ring out behind him and this was corroborated by another witness who saw two men in black jackets and blue jeans racing off in the direction of Theparak Road. The man on the back of the motorcycle was putting a gun away as they rode off.

Meanwhile the victim’s wife told police that her husband had no issues with anyone and she had no idea why he might have been shot.
