Narathiwat man fatally shot in Bacho
A 37-year-old man was shot to death on Monday in the Narathiwat's Bacho district.
Police identified the victim as Maroesi Yaning of Bacho district and said he also worked with a security unit in his village of Palukapaera. His body was found near a motorcycle he had borrowed from a friend at about 7.30am.
He was on his way to run an errand in a village when a gunman hiding in a rubber plantation shot him in the chest. Police said the gunman then emerged and shot him again in the head to make sure he was dead.
Police have not ruled out possibility that the attack may have been the result of a personal conflict. The village is in a red zone and has been attacked by insurgents many times in the past, resulting in several deaths and injuries.
