Suspect in fatal pub brawl surrenders

The prime suspect in a recent fatal pub brawl has surrendered to police but has only made a partial confession.

Jakkraphan Yooto, 22, is facing charges of murder, attempted murder and the unauthorised carrying of a firearm.

The suspect's father handed him over to police on Thursday evening after the Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant.

"We have solid evidence against him," Colonel Charoen Srisalak said yesterday in his capacity as deputy chief of the Metropolitan Police Division 2.

One man was killed and three others injured in the pub brawl earlier this week.

Charoen said police had already interrogated 10 witnesses who all provided useful information.
