Two Arrested For Mass Shooting Threats On Facebook

A 27-year-old man from Chaiyaphum and a 16-year-old boy from Roi Et have been charged with various offences after posting threats on Facebook they would carry out mass shootings at shopping malls.

Peerapat Chusang from Chaiyaphum turned himself in to police on Monday after a Facebook post he made suggesting he would carry out a mass shooting at the Robinson Department Store in the northeast province went viral.

The post was made along with photos of a gun and Peerapat wearing an army uniform of a high-ranking officer.

He told police he was angry after a bust-up with his girlfriend and he never intended to hurt anyone. He said the photos of the gun were downloaded from the internet and the uniform belonged to his former superior when he served in the army.

Peerapat was charged with violating the Computer Crime Act, violating Section 392 of the Criminal Code by causing public fear, and violating military law for wearing an official uniform.
