Man Surrenders to Police After Gunning Down Mothers Friend

A 29-year-old man is facing charges of murder after surrendering to police after shooting a passenger in his mother’s pickup truck. He chased him down on his motorcyclist and shot and killed him on Monday morning.

Pol Lt Gen Thanayut Wutthicharasthamrong, chief of Provincial Police Region 7, accepted the surrender of Sitthichai Mankhong, 29, accompanied by his relatives on Monday evening around 4 p.m.

Ampol Bungthong, 27, from Phetchabun province, was shot ten times with a 9mm pistol, in both the head and body, police said.

Ampol was riding with Rojana Cheewee, 50, from Kanchanaburi’s Muang district, in a pickup truck. About 8:20 am, a motorcyclist approached the pickup at an intersection and confronted its driver.

The man on the motorcycle chased Ampol from the pickup into the car park of an adjacent shopping mall. There, the motorcyclist shot him dead. A CCTV surveillance camera recorded Mr Sitthichai shooting the victim.

Ms Rojana (the shooter’s mother) said she and the dead man were friends and they were on their way to get their second Covid-19 vaccine shot at Phahon Phonpayuhasena Hospital.

Ms Rojana’s son, Mr Sitthichai, was arrested five hours after the attack.

The police took him to his house in tambon Tha Makam in Muang district after he surrendered. The police seized a 9mm pistol they believe was used, along with some ammunition, clothing, and a motorcycle believed to be used in the shooting.

The suspect was scheduled to be taken for a crime reenactment on Tuesday. A murder charge was filed against him.
