Man Fatally Shot Over Dog Dispute at a Nonthaburi Condominium, Suspect Still At Large


At 7:00 AM, on April 29th, 2024, Rattanathibet investigative police received a murder report of a man shot dead at a 16-storey condominium in Mueang Nonthaburi, Nonthaburi.

Rattanathibet forensic police, emergency services, and relevant agencies were dispatched to the crime scene and found the body of a man, publicly identified only as Mr. Kongchai, 45, in front of the ninth-floor elevator of the condominium, whose name was withheld pending further investigation.

According to the police report, wounds were found on his left cheek, penetrating the right side of his neck and his left arm. Three bullet shells were found near the body.

The police gathered CCTV footage at the condominium and discovered that the victim was headed to throw garbage away in front of the elevator. However, a man in a monkey cap, publicly identified only as Mr. Narin, a 40-year-old Thai-Swedish man, allegedly shot the victim three times before fleeing.

According to the police report, the victim’s wife reportedly told the police that Kongchai had his room adjacent to Narin, the suspect. The victim and the suspect reportedly had a recent verbal feud as Narin’s bulldog allegedly clawed the wall causing the victim annoyance. In turn, Kongchai’s small breed dog allegedly barked loudly.

Previously before the murder incident, they both allegedly had a heated argument inside the condominium’s elevator and the escalated quarrel caused Narin to later commit the murder, according to the police report.

The Nonthaburi Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Narin for intentional murder. The police were investigating the case to track down the suspect with caution as the suspect had a firearm and was a skilled shooter and was considered dangerous.
