Police are searching for a 60 year old man who allegedly shot another after an argument over lottery tickets. The alleged shooter, identified as Noi, gave money to 35 year old Samrit to buy lottery tickets, according to a salon owner next door in Samut Prakan, just south east of Bangkok. When the numbers came up as winners, Noi allegedly approached Samrit to get the tickets and claim his prize, but apparently Samrit said he didn’t buy tickets with the winning numbers.

Noi, who works at a nearby ice factory, came back later and demanded the money again, Thai media reports. Samrit didn’t have the money and Noi allegedly left and came back about 10 minutes later with a gun, shooting Samrit and then driving off on his motorcycle.

Witnesses say Noi just shot once, but Thai media reports Samrit had wounds on both his legs and his hip. Reports say he was taken to the Muang Samut Pak Nam Hospital, but did not give detail on his condition. Police are still investigating.
