    Earlier this month, a mass shooting took place in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima, when a Thai soldier killed several troops at a military base before driving off to the centre of the city to continue his rampage.

    Reuters reported on Tuesday that a gunman opened fire at a mall in Bangkok, Thailand, killing one person and injuring another.

    "There was a shooting event at Century Plaza. It was personal issue. One person died and another was injured," police Colonel Krissana Pattanacharoen told the outlet.

    According to reports, the shooting occurred near a beauty clinic in the shopping mall, while the victim has been identified as a clinic employee.

    According to police spokesman Kitsana Phatanacharoen, the perpetrator has fled the scene of the incident. At the same time, a senior police officer said that the conflict was driven by jealousy-driven disputes and the gunman was the victim's boyfriend.

    The incident occurred nearly two weeks after a mass shooting took place in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima when a 32-year-old Thai soldier killed several other service personnel at a military base and then moved to a shopping mall, killing a number of people and taking several hostages.
