Thailand attack: ex-cop kills 38 people including 22 children at daycare center

BANGKOK — A former policeman killed 38 people, including 22 children, in a knife and gun rampage at a daycare center in Thailand on Thursday (Sept. 6), later shooting dead his wife and child at their home before turning his weapon on himself, police said.

The children at the daycare center in Uthai Sawan, a town 500 km (310 miles) northeast of Bangkok, were mostly stabbed to death, they said.

Police identified the attacker as a former member of the force who was dismissed from his post last year over drug allegations and he was facing trial on a drugs charge.

The man had been in court earlier in the day and had then gone to the daycare center to collect his child, police spokesperson Paisal Luesomboon told broadcaster Thai PBS.

When he did not find his child there, he began the killing spree, Paisal said. “He started shooting, slashing, killing children at the Utai Sawan daycare center,” Paisal said.

About 30 children were at the facility when the attacker arrived, fewer than usual, as heavy rain had kept many people away, district official Jidapa Boonsom, who was working in a nearby office at the time.

“The shooter came in around lunchtime and shot four or five officials at the childcare center first,” Jidapa told Reuters.

At first, people thought the shots were fireworks, she said.

“It’s really shocking. We were very scared and running to hide once we knew it was shooting. So many children got killed, I’ve never seen anything like it.”

The attacker forced his way into a locked room where the children were sleeping, Jidapa said. She said she thought he killed children there with a knife, adding that a teacher who was eight months pregnant was also stabbed to death.
