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.
