Police besiege gunman in Thailand who killed at least 2
Police in Thailand said Wednesday they have cordoned off a neighborhood in a city southwest of the capital where they have trapped a gunman inside his house after he shot dead at least two people and wounded several others.
Thai television showed images of police taking positions on a quiet street in Phetchaburi, about 170 kilometers (105 miles) southwest of Bangkok, some carrying weapons and others with protective shields.
Police Maj. Punyapon Srimaek said two people had been confirmed killed in the incident, which began early Wednesday afternoon.
He said one of the three people believed to be wounded might actually be dead because although his body could be seen by a police drone in front of the gunman's house, it could not be retrieved because it was in the line of fire.
The two other injured people, one a local official who rushed to the site when he was notified of the shooting, were taken to a hospital.
