PATHUM THANI – An out of work man is believed to have shot his wife and adopted son before turning the gun on himself in a fit of depression because he could not provide for his family. 

About 1.30am on Monday, police received reports of shooting at a house in Muang district. At the scene they found one dead body and two people in critical condition.

All three victims were shot in the head. Police said Mrs Ampai Chuenyen, 48, died at the scene. Her husband  Pradit Khaeng-Saleekit, 46, died later in a hospital, where three year-old Wisarut Chuenyen remains in a critical condition.
