PHUKET: A young member of the Chindapol clan, one of the largest families on the island, remains unconscious after being shot outside Phuket Vocational College in Saphan Hin Sunday night as he was waiting for a friend.
Maj Sarit Butnongsang, Duty Inspector of Phuket City Police Station, told the Gazette, “The injured youth is Duangdon Chindapol, 18. He was shot by two teenagers while he and three friends were waiting for another friend near Phuket Vocational College.
“One of the victim’s friends said that two teenagers drove up to them on a motorcycle. One of the teens got off the bike, walked up to Duangdon and shot at him three or four times. He was hit in the cheek, neck and hand.
“She said that both of Duangdon’s assailants were wearing helmets so she couldn’t get a clear view of their faces. She couldn’t remember the registration plate number of the motorcycle,” Maj Sarit said.
“We need to take a statement from Duangdon to find out if he knows of anyone with a grudge against him. Presently, however, he is still unconscious in a serious condition at Vachira Phuket Hospital,” he added.
