Over 30 Killed in Thailand After Ex-Cop Begins Murderous Rampage at Child Care Center

HeadlineOct 06, 2022

In Thailand, at least 35 people were killed earlier today when a former police officer went on a murderous rampage. Police say the 34-year-old suspect shot and stabbed children at a child care center in northeastern Thailand, killing 19 boys, three girls and two adults. Thai authorities say the assailant then fled the scene, opening fire randomly from his car; he then returned home, killed his wife and child, and turned the gun on himself. It’s Thailand’s bloodiest mass shooting since 2020, when a soldier with an assault rifle killed 29 people and wounded nearly 60 others.
