Parking Lot Dispute Led To House Shooting

(25 November) A man has discharged his firearm at his neighbour′s house following a dispute over parking space, police in Chonburi province said.

When the police arrived at the scene in Nong Prue district, they found Ms. Supattra Khamwan, the owner of thouse, waiting in tears with her young nieces, who were visibly distraught by the alleged gunfire.

She told police that she and Mr. Aree Daugnpathum, 40, often had arguments about how she parked her car next to her house, which Mr. Aree reportedly claimed to his usual parking space. Under influence of alcohol, Ms. Supattra said, Mr. Aree arrived in front of her house and shouted angrily that she had parked the car in the disputed space again.

When it became clear that Ms. Supattra would not come out to talk to him, Mr. Aree allegedly fired his pistol several times into Ms. Supattra, in the presence of young children, but no one has been injured.

Police later arrested Mr. Aree, who confessed to his crime, but insisted that he did not intend to cause any death or injury.

It is reported that Mr. Aree is facing charges for his misconduct.
