Korat: Thai man arrested on attempted murder charge eight years after shooting in Bangkok
Thai police arrested a 45 year old man at a market in Muang district of Nakhon Ratchasima yesterday just over 8 years after he allegedly shot at a group of men eating at a restaurant in Bang Na, south east of Bangkok.
Thamrong was named in a warrant for attempted murder and weapons possession issued by the Phrakhanong court in August 2013. After the warrant was issued he disappeared.
The warrant came after a shooting on December 28th 2011 at a restaurant in Soi Phian Phan in Bang Na.
It is alleged that Thamrong used a shotgun to fire into a group of men including someone named only as "F".
Thamrong denies attempted murder. He said that he was attacked first in a fist fight and seeing as he is only a small guy he used a gun to defend himself.
He was taken back to Bang Na police station.
