THAILAND (AP) — A soldier shot multiple people in northeastern Thailand on Saturday, killing at least 20, and was holed up in a popular shopping mall before being secured, officials said.
A police officer in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima said the soldier initially shot dead another soldier and a woman and wounded a third person.
Two local police officers say the man took a gun from his base and drove to the mall, where the shooting continued.
Video taken outside the mall and shared on social media showed people taking cover in a parking lot as gunshots were fired.
Updates continue to be released about this incident:
