Bangkok: Two people were killed and a 14-year-old was arrested in connection with the Siam Paragon mall shooting.

The shooting took place at the Siam Paragon mall, the city’s most prominent mall and one of Asia’s most visited destinations.

According to Thailand’s police commander, the victims were from China and Myanmar.

According to authorities, the suspect surrendered and was carrying a pistol.

Five additional persons were hurt, including a Laotian, a Chinese, and three Thais.

According to Torsak Sukvimol, national police chief, one of the fatalities was Chinese and the other, who worked at the mall, was Burmese.

Footage showed shoppers at the Siam Paragon mall fleeing for the exits after hearing multiple rounds fired.

Several persons had been injured by the time police arrived on the scene at 17:10 local time (10:10 GMT) and disarmed the perpetrator.

To get the casualties to the hospital, ambulances had to navigate the notoriously congested rush hour traffic in this area of Bangkok.

The adolescent suspect has been taken to Pathumwan police station.

He went to a school near the mall and had a history of receiving treatment for a mental health illness at Rajvithi hospital, but had lately stopped taking his medicine, according to Mr Sukvimol.
