    Vocational student shot dead in Bangkok’s Dusit district Monday morning

    Bangkok police have launched a manhunt for three men, riding two motorcycles, who shot and killed a 16-year-old vocational student on Ranong 2 Road in the Dusit district of Bangkok on Monday morning.


    The victim has been identified as a second-year student at Dusit Technical College. He was found dead on the pavement. A pen pistol with a .38 calibre bullet in the chamber was found near his body.


    Police have questioned the victimís friend, who reportedly said that he left the college on a motorcycle to pick the victim up, after he had disembarked from a bus on Rama V Road, opposite the entrance to Ranong 2 Road.


    He said the victim told him he was being followed by three men riding two motorcycles, wearing black and full face crash helmets. He said they stopped in the middle of the road, then rushed toward him, one welding a knife. He then heard a gunshot and the victim collapsed. The three perpetrators escaped towards the Rama V Road.


    A lecturer at the college told the police that the students there have not been engaged in violent incidents with other college students for about five years.


    The victimís father told the police that his son usually went to the college by bus from home in the Din Daeng area in casual clothes, changing into his uniform after entering the college.


    He said that he had asked his son to quit the college out of fear for his safety, because of inter -school rivalry, but his son insisted on continuing his studies at the college, adding that he had only one son.


    On November 11th, a female teacher at the Sacred Heart Convent School, was also killed by a stray bullet and a student of Rajamangala University of Technology Tawan-Ok Uthenthawai Campus was fatally wounded by rival students on Sunthorn Kosa Road in the Khlong Toei area. Police have still been unable to arrest the perpetrators, who are believed to be students from a rival college.

    Bangkok Police Unveil Details of Dusit College Shooting

    At 6:30 PM, on November 21st, 2023, Pol. Lt. Gen. Thiti Saengsaeng, the commander of the Metropolitan Police, publicly revealed the case process on the shooting of a Dusit Technical College student on November 20th.

    According to the report from the Thai police, the three main alleged suspects were identified. One of the alleged suspects voluntarily surrendered and was publicly identified as Mr. Akkaraphon Sirimekanon, a 22-year-old former college student in a college institution in Thonburi.

    Akkaraphon reportedly confessed his wrongdoings that before the incident, he and his two other friends drank Kratom water and rode their motorcycles around the Dusit area to intentionally tease other college students.


    Kratom is an opioid-like herbal substance with serious side effects and a high risk for addiction, say police.
    Akkaraphon admitted to the police officers that he shot the victim with a pen gun as he claimed that his friend who was only identified as Mr. Thanakorn, an 18-year-old former college student in an institution in Charansanitwong, was reportedly stabbed by the victim’s group first.


    On November 22nd, 2023, Dusit police officers captured Thanakorn at a park in the metropolitan area. Meanwhile, another alleged suspect who was later identified only as Mr. Ohm is still at large.
    Initially, Akkaraphon reportedly was the only shooter and told the police officers that the incident had nothing to do with a conflict between institutes as he worked as a package deliverer for a private company.
    However, the Dusit police officers took Akkaraphon and Thanakorn for further forensic investigation to determine the case of Thanakorn who allegedly being stabbed. The police officers would further gather evidence to hold them accountable for their crimes and capture the other alleged suspect.
