At least 35 people were killed in the attack on the childcare center

A disgraced former police officer in Thailand killed at least 35 people, including 24 children, in a shooting rampage on Thursday that began at a day care center and ended at his home where he killed his family and himself, authorities said.

The deputy chief of police in the country Lt. Gen. Torsak Sukwimol said the attack began at about 12:30 pm local time in Nong Bua Lamphu district, about 330 kilometers northeast of Bangkok. Nineteen boys, three girls and two adults were killed at a day care center in front of a gunman, said to be ex-Policeman Panya Khamrab, who drove and shot people on the street, police said.

The suspect drove home and killed his wife and child before killing himself, police said.

A witness told the Thai television Kom Chad Leuk that they had locked the door of the building when they saw the suspect coming with a gun, but he shot through it.
