Noodle shop owner shoots clients over missing bowl

A 53-year-old noodle shop owner in Bangkok was arrested today (May 3) after he shot three clients who failed to return noodle bowls, the Thai-language Daily News reported.

The injured men told Tha Rua District police that they took three noodle bowls to eat in their apartment around noon. The shop owner later came to collect the bowls, and got angry when one bowl went missing.

A war of words erupted and a fist fight ensued. The shop owner limped back to his house, returned with a handgun and began a shooting spree. One of the clients was seriously wounded.
