Following a report on the shooting at a Harley-Davidson motorcycle shop in Pattaya, police expected that influential Thai residents and foreigners were involved. The officers say the group might have had some sort of conflict over the business and personal issues between members of two influential groups.

The Harley-Davidson motorcycle shop located on Sukhumvit Road in Pattaya was the location of the attack. 11 gunshots were spotted on the front window. The shop’s security guard told police that 4 suspects arrived at the shop on 2 motorcycles and seized his phone to prevent him from calling the police.

Then, the shooters immediately fired at the showroom and fled away. Then police received another report of a shooting at the house of a HOG AAS of Pattaya (motorcycle club) member. The shooting happened at a similar time, and the officers believe the 2 shootings are connected.

The investigation and search for the suspects continues. On April 25, the Deputy Commissioner of Nong Prue Police Station, Suchart Theerasawat, revealed that the investigators revisited both crime scenes to collect more evidence. They have been checking the CCTV cameras at the time of the incidents, as well as the days before, to identify people who might be involved. The Deputy Commissioner says the police already have some “interesting names” but didn’t reveal them to the media.
