Once the police met member of the gang for the drug trade, another car pulled up at the dealing point. Narcotics police sensing that the situation was out of the drug bust plan, announced that they were police and for the drug dealers to give themselves up. Then the drug dealers open fired nearly killing a narcotic officer with a bullet that hit inches from the heart. But another narcotic police, Apichart was in the open and was fired on at close range to his body 4 times, a certain death. All the shot went blank. Somchai, head of the Thai police in the area, said the bullet blank might be because of a magical amulet worn by Apichart.
