On Saturday, a frenzied soldier, identified as Col. Jakrapanth Thomma, killed his commander and two others at a military base before fleeing in a jeep.
Driving to a shopping mall in the Muang district, Thomma shot people en route.
Among those reportedly killed are Col. Anantharot Krasae, a Thai army commander.
Thomma livestreamed the attack via Facebook with a selfie, holding his rifle, before dying in a standoff with soldiers and police.
