By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Thirty-four people lost their lives in a mass shooting in Thailand today, CNN reports.
Twenty-two of the victims are children. Reports indicate that a lone gunman entered a child care center in northeastern Thailand and opened fire.
Authorities in Thailand say that the suspect is a former policeman involved in an ongoing court case for allegedly selling drugs.
Police later confirmed that the gunman had killed his wife and stepson before committing suicide.
