Police in northeastern Thailand say a soldier has shot multiple people, killing more than 10, and fled to a popular shopping mall.

A police officer in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima said the soldier initially shot dead another soldier and a woman and wounded a third person.

Two local police officers say the man took a gun from his base and drove to the mall, where the shooting continued.

Video taken outside the mall and shared on social media showed people taking cover in a parking lot as gunshots were fired.
