    Homemade gun brought to settle score behind classroom explosion

    ANN/THE NATION THAILAND – Police found a .38-calibre homemade gun in a canal that is believed to be behind the “mysterious explosion” that killed a ninth-grader in school on Thursday.

    The explosion occurred in a computer class at Wat Lat Pla Duk School in Nonthaburi’s Bang Bua Thong district, with 15-year-old Noppasil Ngamsud sustaining fatal injuries. It was initially suspected that a computer had blown up.

    Deputy Nonthaburi police chief Pol Colonel Phumthat Khositwanitpong said during interrogation, a boy reportedly confessed he had brought a homemade gun to class to settle a quarrel with Noppasil, but it accidentally went off.

    The boy reportedly said that after the incident he contacted a friend to help him get rid of the gun. Police interrogated the friend until he reportedly confessed to dumping the gun in the Bang Phai Canal about 1.5 kilometres away from the school.

    At around 8pm on Thursday, divers found a .38 calibre homemade gun in the canal.

    Classmates reportedly told police that the alleged attacker had never shown any violent tendencies, but had been absent from school frequently. They also said they were unaware of a quarrel between him and Noppasil.

    Paweena Ngamsud, 35, said Noppasil was her only son, who was studious and never caused any problems.

    The school principal, meanwhile, will be questioned over alleged negligence.
