According to Thai news sources, on the morning of March 4, five Chinese gangsters attempted to rob a gun store using knives and fake guns, but the store owner used one of the many real guns at his disposal to fend them off.
While the store owner and employees received several knife wounds during the incident, the gangsters fared much worse. Two of the gangsters were shot by the store owner, one of whom later died of his wounds in the hospital. Police managed to arrest two others, though one gangster still remains at large.
According to the police, one of the criminal’s passports showed that the gang was from China's Inner Mongolia region, and they entered Thailand on February 27 with their two fake guns.
You know what they say. Don’t bring a knife (or a fake gun) to a gunfight.

This article's title is misleading. When I think of the word "gangsters", I think of the New York 5 Families or the Chicago Outfit, the Triads, or Yakuza, not some flunky robbers. Heck, these fools wouldn't earn the title gangster even in the Bronx hood.
