A shocking incident occurred in Pattani, where an unidentified assailant ambushed and shot dead an employee of the Kolotanyong Subdistrict Administrative Organisation (SAO) while he was riding his motorcycle to work. The police are urgently investigating the motive behind the attack.

Officers yesterday received a report from Nong Chik Police Station’s radio centre about the fatal shooting of an employee of the Kolotanyong SAO. The attack took place on a roadside within the village of Moo 1, Kolotanyong Subdistrict, Nong Chik District, Pattani Province.

Upon receiving the report, police officials quickly informed their superiors and dispatched a team to the scene. The deceased was identified as 43 year old Thammarong Promprasit, who was found dead beside his motorcycle at the scene of the crime.

Initial investigations revealed that Thammarong was riding his motorcycle from his home in Moo 6, Kolotanyong Subdistrict, to his workplace at the Kolotanyong SAO. As he reached the location of the ambush, an unknown assailant, or possibly multiple assailants, opened fire using an unidentified type and calibre of firearm. Thammarong was shot dead on the spot, reported KhaoSod.

The police are looking into various angles, including personal conflicts and other potential motives. The police have not yet determined the identity or number of assailants involved in the shooting.
