A Thai soldier has killed at least 17 people leaving 21 others injured during a shooting rampage in the northeastern city of Nakhon Ratchasima.

Police identified the suspect as Sergeant Major Jakrapanth Thomma, who is still at large. 

The Sergeant reportedly began his murderous rampage on Saturday afternoon at his barracks, where he executed his commanding officer along with two other soldiers, before stealing an army vehicle and posted photos and video of himself in full gear as he carried out the attack.

Earlier in the day, he wrote on his Facebook page: “Death is inevitable for everyone.” 

After stealing the army vehicle, he drove along the motorway toward the Terminal 21 shopping mall in Korat, a city 155 miles northeast of Bangkok, and opened fire on civilians along the road.  

The suspect later stopped and posted a selfie of himself in front of an explosion in the mail.
