Shocking footage from the street in Nakorn Pathom on Monday lunchtime showed a Rayong man aim a .38 gun at his ex girlfriend and kill her.
As the victim’s friend scurries away the man goes to the ground and attempts to kill himself by firing at his own neck.
He failed and a member of the public got him to hospital before the Phuttamonthon cops arrived on the scene.
He is in a serious condition in hospital.
The man had laid in wait for his university student girlfriend. He wanted to get back together with her again but was turned down.
After appearing to fire or perhaps pretending to fire the woman stands her ground. She is then gunned down.
She was named as 21 year old Natchareeya Thaprajit from Surin. She was a student at Suan Sunundha Rajabhat University.
Her ex boyfriend is aged about 25, said Thai Rath.
The incident happened outside the Sahaporn housing estate on the Phuttamonthon to Nakorn Chaisri Road in Nakorn Pathom province west of Bangkok.
The victim’s Facebook page featured an emoji with a broken heart.
The victim – named as “Nong Um” – had said on her page that even though she had split up with her boyfriend she still had herself.
The Times group deemed showing the video would be inappropriate out of respect for the poor girl and her family.
