A recently-divorced man has died after shooting himself in the Bangkok hospital where his ex-wife works.

According to a Bangkok Post report, 46 year old Sutthiphas Thitipornanant arrived at the hospital yesterday, March 25, to talk to his ex-wife. It’s understood she is a doctor at the unnamed facility in the Lad Phrao district of the capital.

Thananthorn Rattanasitthipak, chief of Metropolitan Police Division 4, says Sutthiphas spent about 5 minutes talking to his ex-wife in her office, during which he handed her some paperwork.

It’s understood the doctor then left to visit patients in a nearby ward, asking her ex-husband to wait in her office.

Shortly after she left, a single gunshot was heard coming from the room. Sutthiphas was found bleeding on the floor, with a spent 9mm pistol cartridge found at the scene. The man later succumbed to the gunshot wound.

According to Thananthorn, the couple divorced around 1 week ago, having only been married for a year. Officers are continuing to investigate the man’s death to confirm the motive for the suicide.

If you or anyone you know is in emotional distress, please contact the Samaritans of Thailand 24-hour hotline: 02 713 6791 (English), 02 713 6793 (Thai) or the Thai Mental Health Hotline at 1323 (Thai).
