Thailand shootingA disgraced former police officer in northeastern Thailand killed at least 36 people, most of them children, in a shooting and slashing rampage Thursday that started at a day care center and ended at his own home where he killed his family and himself, authorities said.

National Police Chief Gen. Dumrongsak Kittiprapas said the attacks began at about 12:30 p.m. local time in Nong Bua Lamphu province, about 330 miles northeast of Bangkok. At least 19 boys, three girls and two adults were killed at the day care center before the suspected gunman, identified as former police officer Panya Khamrab, drove off shooting randomly at people on the street, police said.

The suspect drove home and killed his wife and son before killing himself, police said. At least 37 people died, including the killer, in the attack in one of the poorest parts of Thailand, according to police spokesman Archayon Kraithong.
