On the bed, a man, identified as 46 year old Phaison, had been shot through the right temple, police say. The gun was found by his feet and police say 5 shots were fired altogether.

A man identified as 25 year old Thanakorn was shot in the arm and chest while running out of the apartment, leaving a trail of blood on the stairs. He was taken to the Rattarin Hospital in Bang Poo.

A noodle shop employee told police that Phaison came by at 6am and asked where Sudarat was. He went upstairs and the employee heard gunshots. Thanakorn was able to make it down the stairs. He was covered in blood.
