Ranger shot dead at market

A female para-military ranger was shot dead as she was selling food at a fresh market in Chanae district of Thailand’s southernmost province of Narathiwat on Thursday evening.

District police said that a lone gunman appears to have stalked the ranger, 30-year-old Nurisan Phromsri, as she was earning additional income while off-duty at the Dusongyor market.

The gunman pulled a 9mm handgun from his belt and fired one shot into the ranger’s head before escaping, killing her instantly. The gunshot panicked shoppers and vendors, who fled in all directions.

Police say that the killing could have been motivated by a personal conflict or she might have been murdered by insurgents, like her younger brother who was recently shot dead, allegedly by insurgents.

Police said they will question the victim’s relatives and other witnesses.
