Students and teachers at a school in the southern Thai province of Songkhla ran away in panic this morning (Feb 4, 2021) after the school director in Thepa District of the southern Thai province of Songkhla pulled out a gun in front of them.
According to the Thai-language daily Khao Sod, the director pulled out the pistol after finishing a speech in front of teachers and students at the end of the Royal Anthem.
“I will make it better than the other directors,” he reportedly said, as the teachers and students ran away in panic.
After the director calmed down, teachers called parents of the students to take them home.
A teacher close to the director told Khao Sod that his boss became stressful over personal problems.
