A Thai military officer reportedly killed a superior and stole weapons and a Humvee Saturday before going on a killing spree in central Thailand . The death toll in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima reached 26, with 57 people wounded, before security forces shot the gunman dead this morning in the Terminal 21 shopping mall after a 12-hour standoff. Identified as Jakraphanth Thomma, the officer posted messages on Facebook during his rampage, which the social network removed.
Why did he do it? Thomma is believed to have been angered by a property deal in which he felt cheated.
