The death toll from Saturday’s mass shooting in northeastern Thailand has risen to 27, including the gunman, with 57 others injured, according to Chinese media, Anadolu Agency reports.

On Sunday Prayut Chan-o-cha, the Thai prime minister, gave the latest death toll from the mass shooting in the city of Nakorn Ratchasima, Xinhua News Agency reported.

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.
