Thai police responded to a fatal shooting at a shopping mall in Bangkok Tuesday, 10 days after a mass shooting at another mall in another part of the country.
“One person died and another was injured,” at the Icon Clinic on the fourth floor of the Century The Movie Plaza, near Victory Monument, Col. Krissana Pattanacharoen told Reuters.
Police identified the victims as Piyanut Chatthai, 28, and Wilasinee Teepan, 29, according to the Bangkok Post, which also reported that the two women worked at the cosmetic clinic in the mall.
