Police in Bangkok have detained a fourteen year old boy following a shooting in an upmarket shopping mall.
Eyewitnesses at the Paragon shopping center say the attacker appeared to open fire at random, as shoppers fled. At least two people were killed.
Local authorities held the suspect with a weapon, and are assessing the exact number of casualties, Thailand’s Central Investigation Bureau said. The suspect, who is reported to have mental health issues, was taken to a nearby hospital after being interrogated by police, Thai Police General Torsak Sukvimol told reporters.
Al Jazeera’s Tony Cheng reports from outside the shopping centre in Bangkok.
