No one was hit though Wisarut said he was very lucky after a pick-up was peppered by bullets.

CCTV footage from two cameras showed a dramatic shootout at a resort in the Soi Khao Noi area of Bang Lamung in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Police were acting on reports of a drugs and sex party at two rooms -302 and 303 – at the property.

When they arrived they were not expecting guns to be used said Wisarut Buathong who insisted they were not negligent.

But as they moved towards the rooms a man rushed out and shot five bullets from a 9mm gun at the officers who themselves fired back.
