A coach which had recently dropped-off Russian Tourists at the Pattaya-Utapao Airport located 45 minutes from the heart of Pattaya was shot at a total of 7 times in the early hours of Saturday. The coach was empty at the time of the incident which began at the South Pattaya intersection with the Sukhumvit Road. The driver of the coach, Khun Sakdar aged 38 explained that a White Pick-up was seen to follow him down the South Pattaya Road and someone inside the vehicle opened fire and 7 bullet holes were seen at the rear of the coach following the shooting. Seconds after the shots were fired, the pick-up initiated a u-turn and seemed to drive off in the direction of Sattahip.
