A group of fifty friends of a dead student attacked a cop after he allegedly shot their friend dead.
Minburi police went to the scene of the shooting of a fourth year engineering student from a Bangkapi tech school. Twenty two year old Ekkachai Bunrat had been hit four times by a 9mm gun and was lying dead in a pool of blood between Sois 6 and 8 in Rom Klao district.
He had a .38 gun in his jeans with six bullets still in it, an empty holster by his belt buckle and there was an empty .38 and two motorcycles lying nearby.
An unnamed injured man was taken to Nopparat Hospital.
Following the shooting a group of fifty of the dead student’s friends started haranguing the police claiming that one of their undercover officers had shot their friend dead.
The object of their claims is the man in the red t-shirt in the news pictures.
The mob surrounded and banged on a police vehicle as the red t-shirt man took refuge from the rain.
He emerged from the vehicle and a melee ensued. According to press reports he produced his gun and said: “I’ll shoot anyone who comes near”.
He then fired two shots in the air.
When the crowd failed to disperse he shot four times into the mob with Thai Rath saying that he had endangered members of the public who were passing and reporters who were on the scene.
He was then whisked away in a police car.
A police spokesman said that shots were fired when an undercover team confronted two men in a drugs related incident. One man is in hospital.
An investigation has been ordered to find out what actually happened.Facebook.
