Dash cam catches daylight shooting in North Pattaya
A car’s dash cam captured a shooting on Tuesday afternoon in an incident in North Pattaya
But after an arrest was made the shooter with connections to a local politician walked free. He may face charges of attempted murder.
The footage was captured in Soi Arunothai at 2.39pm. A woman is seen threatening a man in a car with a baseball bat.
But after she goes back to her car a man jumps out of his own vehicle and fires two shots in her direction.
Siamchon News said that a chase then ensued.
They reported that a man called Manat Thongmark, 52, was later arrested by Pattaya police.
He was bailed on charges of discharging a gun in a public place after his relatives asked a local politician to bail him out.
Police are continuing to gather witness statements while considering whether to add a charge of attempted murder to the rap sheet for Manat.
