A man killed his ex-wife and wounded another person at a shopping center in Bangkok on Tuesday (February 18), police said, just 10 days after a mass shooting at another mall in Thailand’s northeast.
The gunman fled the Century The Movie Plaza mall, near the Victory Monument in the capital and is still on the run, police said.
He had gone into a beauty clinic at the mall where his ex-wife worked and opened fire, killing her and wounding a bystander, Colonel Kissana Pattanacharoen said.
On Feb. 8 and 9, a soldier killed at least a dozen people at the Terminal 21 shopping center in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima. He had earlier killed his commanding officer, other soldiers at his base and several people at a Buddhist temple.
