Police have arrested two wanted suspects – 19 year old Tanawat ‘Bill’ Chanakun from Krabi and 19 year old Nattakit ‘Meen’ Kaewnuan from Nakhon Si Thamarat. They were arrested in Nakhon Si Thammarat.
Nattakit told police that they were visiting Ao Nang. Tanawat fire two shots at Somkit’s car. The motive, at this stage, is not clear.
