A 37-year-old man allegedly shot dead his own 79-year-old father in a heated argument after the victim allegedly assaulted his wife in Phetchaburi’s Tha Yang district on Saturday night.

Following the report of a fatal shooting at 8.30pm, police rushed to the one-storey house in Tambon Tha Yang to find the body of Prasert Taeng-on with five gunshot wounds to his chest, stomach, left hip, and both arms. Officers collected five spent cartridges from the scene.

Prasert's daughter-in-law Budsaba Noinarai, 31, said her husband Ratchata Taeng-on fought with Prasert after seeing his father arguing over money and family business with his mother Aree, 74, and allegedly beating her. 

Ratchata shot his father with a 9mm pistol during the subsequent argument and fled, said Budsaba. 

The incident took place after the family had finished hosting a wedding for Ratchata's elder sister in the morning and was returning tents and props.
