“I didn’t know it was loaded”: Thai man in custody after shooting girlfriend in Chachoengsao | Samui Times

Bang Pakong police were called to an address in Soi Wat Bang Wua, Chachoengsao, after reports that a woman had been shot in the leg. 

Chotirot, 25, was found with a .38 bullet embedded in her thigh. 

Rescue medics fought to staunch the blood before taking her to Chularat 11 Hospital. 

Police arrested her boyfriend Ekkachai Khiawtai, 24, and took a Thai made .38 gun and four bullets found in a wardrobe into evidence.

He told the police that his girlfriend had just come home from work. He was fingering his weapon and had no idea it was loaded. 

Police plan to speak to the girlfriend again as part of their inquiries, reported Thai Rath.
