A fifteen year old Minburi student shot in the head yesterday was mistaken for someone else, police said.

The daylight attack happened yesterday just metres from a traffic police box on the Suwinthawong U-turn near the Minburi intersection. A pool of blood and some discarded shoes marked the spot where the attack happened reported Daily News.

Police said the shooter is known to them and is an apprentice at a college in the area. They are hunting him now.

Shot in the head was Theeraphat Chayhong, 15, a Mor 3 (Year 10) student at a school in Soi Hatairat. He was taken to Nawamin 1 hospital along with a friend who was also hurt. He was named as 15 year old Sirimongkhon Lunlahui. Both are out of danger.

Police said that Theeraphat had no issues with any other students in the area and think it was a case of mistaken identity.
