Wedding gunshot kills observer

http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general ... s-observer

CHON BURI - One of several gunshots fired to celebrate a groom tying the knot on Sunday ended up taking the life of another man watching the wedding parade passing by.

Thanes Inthawong and his girlfriend Weerawan Supachon were visiting their friend Supalert Horpetch at Ban Huay Khai Nao in Bang Lamung district in Chon Buri for breakfast.

After finishing the meal, they were about to leave and saw the groom's parade approaching with several gunshots fired by the parade attendants.

Ms Weerawan told Huay Yai police that Thanes collapsed in front of her as the shots rang out. Police at the scene found a bullet had entered his left chest, killing him instantly.

The gunshots from the parade stopped after the attendants found out that a man had been hit.

Police found a dozen bullet shells from 11mm, 9mm and .38mm pistols on the road. They went to the place where the bride was holding the wedding ceremony less than 100 metres away, but Sumeth Lomrorb, the groom, his bride and their guests refused to give information to authorities.

Police seized the camera from a photographer assigned to take pictures of the ceremony for evidence, while the ceremony continued.

Huay Yai police chief Pol Col Anan Purahong said at least three people fired shots during the parade as three kinds of bullet shells were collected, adding that all of the shooters had probably left the ceremony.

Police have not determined the size of the bullet that killed Thanes.

The newly-wed couple face legal action for allowing people to fire guns in a public place. Those who fired the pistols will be facing the same charge, while a murder charge will be added to the one who killed Thanes, Pol Col Anan said.
Pol Col Anan warned all shooters to report to police or face arrest warrants.

People upcountry sometimes fire guns into the sky for celebrations on many occasions including wedding ceremonies, although it is banned and police have warned of legal action.

Not an auspicious way to begin a marriage. This will (should) haunt them their entire lives if they have any conscience. Stupid statement, isn't it? :roll: :banghead: Pete :cheers:

Its interesting that they said guns are fired into the sky up north. But in talking about this incident the ommitted the "into the sky" part, multiple times.
