At least 38 people – including at least 20 children – have been killed after a former police officer opened fire at a kindergarten in Thailand, security sources in the country have confirmed.

The attack took place in the province of Nong Bua Lamphu, in the northeast of the country. The assailant, who was carrying a shotgun, a pistol and a knife, killed then to his family and committed suicide.

The attacker, who police identified as 34-year-old Panya Kamrab, entered the nursery and indiscriminately shot and stabbed children and adults before fleeing. At the moment, the motives for the attack are not known.

Apparently, the ex-agent had been fired last year for drug use, according to the Thai television network “Thai PBS”.
