Scenes of relatives of the shooting victims weep as they wait for their beloved one’s bodies at a forensic laboratory of Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital, Nakhon Ratchasima province, Thailand, 09 February 2020.

According to media reports, at least 27 people including a suspected gunman were killed, and as many as 57 wounded after a Thai soldier, identified as 32-year-old Jakraphanth Thomma, went on a shooting rampage with a M60 machine gun and assault rifles in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima, also known as Korat.

Thomma held an unknown number of people hostage within the Terminal 21 shopping mall for around 15 hours before being shot and killed in a police operation.
