A 19 year old man was shot in an apparently random incident in South Pattaya, early on Monday morning. Khun Apirak aged 19 was driving his motorbike around Pattaya when he encountered a black car which appeared to be following him and his two friends who were travelling on bikes in front of him. When they arrived in Soi Bongkot a passenger in the car began shooting in their direction and Khun Apirak was shot in his backside. At Banglamung Hospital he confirmed the story to Police who explained that it would be difficult to catch the person or group responsible for the shooting due to a lack of information. Despite this Police will continue their investigation into the shooting.
