    The logical thing to do would be to get a negotiator to calm him down while the snipers take their positions and size up shots.
    they've now got a negotiator, his mum, and brought her to talk to him.

    Correction from khaosod.

    Correction:
    An earlier version of this article identified the suspected gunman as a corporal. In fact, he is a sergeant.

    Bangkok post has finally got its shit together.

    Lt Gen Thanya Kriatisarn, commander of the Second Army Region, said police and soldiers were hunting the attacker, identified as Sgt Maj Jakrapanth Thomma, 32, of the Surathampithak camp.


    The slain commander has been identified as Col Anantharot Krasae, with whom the gunman was reported to have had a conflict. A 63-year-old woman said to be Col Anantharot’s mother-in law was also killed at the camp, along with another soldier.

    They're not the best at dealing with 'conflicts', are they.

    mother-in law was also killed
    Usually they leave it at that, or perhaps a sister or poisoned dog.

    It doesn't look like it would take much effort to get in or out of that camp.

    Khaosod now reporting 16 dead.


    POLICE, ARMY BESIEGE SHOPPING MALL TO SEARCH FOR SOLDIER WHO KILLS 16

    Update: Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation says the number of fatalities rose to 16 as of 9pm.


    KORAT — A soldier who shot dead at least 16 people in Nakhon Ratchasima is said to be holding 16 people as hostages inside a popular shopping mall.

    How very Thai.

    A police officer said the suspect had been involved in an argument about a land deal and shot two people who were involved, another soldier and a woman.


    He said a third person was injured.

    "We don't know why he did this. It appears he went mad," said defence ministry spokesman Kongcheep Tantrawanit.

    Watching you shred the Thia country and people over this incident, is going to be a barn burner.

    Is that all you have so far ? I was hoping for a few more sentences.

    The problem is that they simply do not have the ability to use initiative. In the end they are waiting for some fat general at the top of the tree to make the decisions.

    It's a shopping mall with myriad exits and access points but swift, decisive action was never in the manual and there it is.

    Hundreds freed from mall where suspect remains at large after killing spree that started in army camp

    NAKHON RATCHASIMA: Police and soldiers rescued hundreds of people from a shopping mall late Saturday night as they continued to hunt for a gunman who had holed up inside after killing at least 20 people.

    The carnage began around 3.30pm when the soldier shot dead his commander and two others at the Surathampithak army camp before stealing weapons and ammunition and fleeing in a stolen Humvee.

    He fired at civilians along the route to the Terminal 21 shopping mall, which was packed with shoppers celebrating the long weekend. Many more people were slain inside the mall, where the gunman live-streamed the mayhem on Facebook Live before his site was shut down.

    “The gunman used a machine gun and shot innocent victims resulting in many injured and dead,” said Pol Col Krissana Pattanacharoen, the police spokesman.

    Defence Ministry spokesman Lt Gen Kongcheep Tantrawanit said late Saturday that 20 deaths had been confirmed. Another 31 people were reported injured, some seriously.

    Officers who stormed the building late Saturday urged the gunman to surrender but they were met with angry shouts and more gunfire.

    Local media showed video of the soldier getting out of a vehicle in front of the mall around 6pm and firing a series of shots, sending people running. Gunshots could be heard on the video.

    The attacker then fired at a cooking gas cylinder, setting off an explosion and fire. Video clips showed people running away and cowering behind cars as thunderous shots rang out.

    Troops from a special warfare unit were dispatched to the mall, where the attacker was said to be holding 16 people hostage on the fourth floor.

    Police Crime Suppression Division commandos arrived from Bangkok by helicopter. Police also brought the man’s mother from Chaiyaphum province to Korat in hopes that she could persuade him to surrender.

    The army commander, Gen Apirat Kongsompong, was also on the scene.

    Around 8.30pm, it was reported that special forces troops were preparing to “engage” the shooter inside the shopping centre. But the immediate focus was on safely evacuating the hundreds of shoppers and workers who were still trapped inside.

    Police said around 11.30pm that they had taken control of floors G, 1, 2 and 3 in the mall.
