A Chinese gang tried to pull off the crime of the century earlier today, holding up a Bangkok gun store armed only with fake guns. You’re not going to believe this, but it didn’t go down as they’d hope.
Sing Sian Daily, a Chinese-language daily in Thailand, reports that the attempted robbery took place at 10am this morning. Four of the gangsters went inside, while the ringleader waited outside.
Things started to go wrong when the gun store owner and staff opened fire with real guns, injuring two of the gang members, while the other two fled for their life. Their boss had already split by the time they got outside.
Police report that one gang member has died from his injuries and one remains on the run. The shop owner says he saw them hanging around the area for the last couple of days. According to police, they are suspected to be Chinese and can’t speak a word of Thai.
