BANGKOK: A Thai soldier killed at least 10 people in a livestreamed shooting on Saturday (Feb 8) in the northeastern city of Korat and remains at large, police said.

There are "more than 10 dead" and many injured, police spokesman Krissana Pattanacharoen told AFP, as authorities sealed off a shopping centre in pursuit of the suspect.

Local media Thairath said that 12 people had been killed in the shooting, which is a rare event in Thailand other than in the far south, where a decades-old insurgency persists.

The gunman, identified by police as Sergeant Major Jakapanth Thomma, stole an army vehicle and also posted photos and video of himself in full tactical gear as the attack in Korat was carried out.

The man had posted on his Facebook page earlier in the day that "Death is inevitable for everyone." He also posted a picture of what appeared to be his hand holding a gun.
Holy shit :( Some footage with sound of the gun shots in the article and in the twitter thread.

*edit* could merge this with the other thread
