Residents of Isaan’s Nakhon Ratchasima province were terrified when a man, dressed in a civil servant’s uniform, pulled out what looked like a heavy rifle to threaten someone who had jumped the queue at a local mechanic’s shop yesterday. Shop staff said the man argued with the person who had cut the queue for 10 minutes before heading to his car to pull out what appeared to be a combat weapon. This terrified people in the shop, who were afraid of a repeat of February’s shopping mall shooting, when an angry soldier went on a rampage, killing 29 and injuring 58.Police Station later said the “civil servant” is the deputy director of a school in the province’s Khon Buri district and that the “combat weapon” was a modified musical instrument.The teacher told reporters he was angered by the person cutting the queue and wanted to scare them. Although he has apologised, the other party insisted on filing a police complaint, which may lead to prosecution.
