At least 35 killed in mass shooting that began at Thailand child care center, police say

A disgraced former police officer in Thailand killed at least 35 people

including 24 children, in a shooting rampage Thursday that started at a day care center

and ended at his own home where he killed his family and himself, authorities said.

Deputy national police chief Lt. Gen. Torsak Sukwimol said the attacks began at about 12:30 p.m. local time in Nong Bua Lamphu province

Nineteen boys, three girls and two adults were killed at the day care center before the gunman

identified as former police Officer Panya Khamrab, drove off shooting randomly at people on the street

The suspect drove home and killed his wife and child before killing himself, police said.

A witness told Thailand’s Kom Chad Leuk television they had locked the door to the building when they saw the suspect approaching with a handgun, but that he shot through it
