So he was was asked to go back to his hotel for a rest.

The following day, September 28, Mr Cook came to the shooting range for the final time. He told staff members that he wanted to use the rest of the bullets he had left over from his previous visit.

The same staff member, again, was assisting and monitoring the 25 year old. Mr Cook used a .45 colt gun to fire at the target. But, with no warning, Mr Cook turned the gun on himself and was about to shoot himself in the temple. The staff member quickly rushed at Mr Cook, pushing his hand away.

The bullet hit him under his right ear. Despite the efforts of first responders and hospital staff, first at Thalang Hospital, then Vachira Hospital, the man died of his injuries on Friday night.Dead Australian visited shooting range three times - Police | News by Thaiger Dead Australian visited shooting range three times - Police | News by Thaiger
