CHAINAT: -- A 25 year old primary school teacher was shot twice in the back of the head as she walked out of a Chainat school on her way home.


She survived and is now in a critical condition in a local hospital, reported Daily News.


The shooter - a former football coach in Koh Samui - turned the gun on himself and died instantly.


The incident happened at the Phrayatak School in Ban Kluay sub-district of Chainat yesterday.


Dead at the scene under a coconut palm was 36 year old Phusit Uamthongdee from Nakorn Pathom.


He had shot 25 year old Siraprapha Suwansathit who was on her way home after teaching her P6 primary class.


She was rushed to a local hospital still alive.


A .38 gun was found at the scene.


The teacher only began her job there last year.


A witness called Iang Bunsern, 60, said he saw the man waiting under the trees for the woman. He went up behind her and shot twice before turning the gun on himself.


Police said that the shooter used to coach a Koh Samui football team.


They are unsure of the motive for the shooting but suspect jealousy.


Investigations continue.
