Samui property agent shot | Thaiger

KOH SAMUI: Samui property agent Gary Pearmain and his girlfriend, Sirinya Sansenao, 25, were shot and wounded by two gunmen at their house in Baan Thongkrud at about 8 pm on Thursday.

Pol Maj Sompong Krutsuwan, Inspector of Samui Police Station, told the Gazette that Mr Pearmain, a British national, was shot in the left hand and chest, and K. Sirinya was hit in the right leg and the left ankle. Both escaped serious injury.

“K. Sirinya said that the two men approached her when she was in front of the house. They said they were looking for the house of a friend called “Dum”. She told them that she and Gary had just moved to the house, and she went back inside,” Maj Sompong said.

“Gary came downstairs and asked K. Sirinya who the men were. She told him, and as they turned to go to the kitchen the men opened fire from outside. Four shell casings were found at the scene,” he added.

“I don’t think that the two gunmen really wanted to kill them, because after they had fallen to the floor, they could have made sure that they were dead.”

Maj Sompong said police are following leads as to whether the attack was related to a business dispute.

The couple are now recovering in Bangkok Samui Hospital.
