He had sustained serious injuries from a gun shot to his head. He was later pronounced dead. A single handgun was found at the scene.

A neighbor told The Pattaya News that she heard the first gun shot before a female started screaming.

After that, she heard another gun shot before a 13 year old girl who is Ms, Chayanan’s daughter ran out for help. Due to her age, The Pattaya News has withheld her name.
