A shocking incident unfolded at Khon Kaen Hospital when a local police officer, Pol Sgt Veeraphong Buayen, surrendered himself in connection with a fatal shooting. The victim, a 29-year-old Myanmar man, was shot by the officer who was reportedly angered by the man disturbing his father in the next bed.

According to reports, Pol Sgt Veeraphong confessed to the crime but refused to participate in a re-enactment at the hospital. The suspect admitted to shooting the victim in the head, claiming he was agitated by the man’s behavior.
