A South Korean man and a Thai woman were injured on Tuesday in a shooting at a spa in Phuket Town.



The two sustained serious injuries from bullet wounds after having been shot at the spa, located in the Wichit area.

The suspect in the shootings, a housekeeper at the spa, later shot and killed himself in Saphan Hin in the afternoon. 

Wichit police reported that they had been notified of an incident at The Beauty Spa at 10.30am.

Police and emergency responders arrived at the scene to find two people injured with gunshot wounds: a 74-year-old South Korean man, Kwang Hee Kim, who is the father of Eun Mi Kim, the owner of The Beauty Spa; and a 56-year-old Thai woman, Somsri Chuatonghua, who works at the spa.

They were both taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital. 

The suspected gunman, 53-year-old Chana Rodket from Songkhla, who worked as a housekeeper at the spa, later died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after police launched a search for him.
