The shooting took place while he was on his way back home.
The victim, 68-year-old Waeyusoh Laelasor, had gunshot wounds in the nape of his neck, his back and his right shoulder.
Witnesses said the victim was riding his motorcycle on Sai Khok Sator-Si Sakhon Road when he was followed by another motorcycle and the man riding pillion opened fire on him.
The victim’s family said Waeyusoh had never had any conflict with anyone.
Police, at this point, have said the shooting could be linked to either a personal conflict or the ongoing unrest in the deep South.
Violence has been raging in Thailand’s southernmost region for more than 10 years, with bloody incidents taking place on almost a daily basis.
