Police in Mae Hong Son are trying to sort out confused testimony about a school shooting on Wednesday night (March 4) that left a teacher and a volunteer severely wounded.

Mok Champae police were summoned to Romklao Pangtong School at about 11pm and found teacher Bunchoo Tamoo and volunteer Ittiphon Moonfong, 57, with gunshot wounds to the legs.

Bunchoo had also been struck on the head with the gun itself.

Police soon after arrested Ittiphon’s son, whose name and age have been withheld, with a .38 handgun inside the vehicle in which he fled the scene.

Another teacher told police that Ittiphon and Bunchoo had an argument that prompted Ittiphon’s son to pull a gun and started shooting Bunchoo.

Investigators have found discrepancies among witnesses’ testimony.
