    Tourists flee in terror as jet ski operator shoots rival dead on Chaweng beach

    Tourists flee in terror as jet ski operator shoots rival dead on Chaweng beach



    Tourists on Chaweng beach fled in terror as a dispute between two Thai men ended in a shoot-out at around 4.30pm on Tuesday 27th of February 2018.
    It is unclear how the dispute started between the son of the owner of Petcherat Marina Bangrak, 26, and a member of the Padma family jet-ski family, 45, however it is known that one man died of gun shot wounds in the altercation. At the time of going to press the other is in ICU. Two guns were found at the scene, a 357 magnum, the other a 9mm Beretta
    After the shooting that left over 100 tourists on the beach in terror, ambulance crews arrived and gave CPR on the beach. They were unable to save the life of the 26 year old.
    Police sealed off the area and seized both weapons. They are currently investigating the crime.

    On a crowded beach in front of tourists!

    You'd have thought their mafia shenanigans would have executed inland away from the tourist industry that feeds them.

    Standard behavior for the chicken heads. Perceived loss of business, perceived loss of of face. Will they ever evolve?

    Surprised they didn't start shooting each other over who'd get the corpse/money/karma.

    Or does that only happen with the Bangkok 'ambulance' crews.

    Think the tourists will be a bit wary of hiring Jet skis for the rest of there holiday.

    Next, it will be the Banana boat shootout.

    Glad I visited Samui back in the 80's

    Riding jet skis with guns

    Deadly shoot-out erupts between firms in Brit holiday hotspot

    A DEADLY shootout erupted on a popular tourist beach when rival jet ski operators open fired at each other.

    By Simon Green / Published 28th February 2018

    Scenes after rival jet ski operators shoot-out on Thai beach.But they started to argue when one encroached onto the other’s patch. It soon turned violent as they started firing their handguns and – as the grainy CCTV footage shows – it sent tourists fleeing in terror. When police arrived they found both men lying in a pool of blood on the white sand. Tinapot later died in hospital.



    Num Hankit, 30, witnessed the bloodbath and said: “I work near the beach and just heard the bullets and came to look".
    “It's scary, anybody could be hit by a bullet".
    “People are riding jet skis with guns in their pockets".
    “I cannot believe this is happening on a beach".



    A man prays after laying flowers on Marhaba beach.

    “There were more than 100 tourists standing on the beach".
    “They looked shocked. They have a holiday and people are shooting each other. It's dangerous.”

    A black 9mm handgun and a smaller silver pistol were recovered from the scene. Police Major General Apichat Boonsaree from the Bophut station said they believed the reason for the gunfight was a “business conflict when renting jet skis to customers”

    Yep. Despite the first aid of good old CPR with heavy chest compressions to a guy bleeding out. I wonder why that didn't help.

    If jet-skis were horses, it might be the OK Corral...They did ride off into the sunset, however...
