British man ‘shot dead’ in Pattaya

A British man was reportedly shot dead in his sports car in the Thai resort of Pattaya.

Tony Kenway, originally from Southampton, was killed in a Porsche at a car park.

Sanit Sport Club, where the shooting happened, offered its condolences in a message posted on its Facebook page.

The Bangkok Post reported that an eyewitness described the gunman as a “chubby man wearing a white T-shirt and black jacket” who opened the door of the red Cayenne GTS before firing once and escaping on a black motorcycle.

Kenway was described as a father-of-four who had set up a website design business.

His Facebook profile shows he lived in Bangkok but previously resided in Marbella, Spain.

A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokeswoman told the BBC: “We are in contact with the family of a British man following his death in Pattaya, Thailand. Our sympathies are with them at this difficult time. We are in touch with the local police.”
