The Bangkok Post reports that rival teen gangs fired at least 50 bullets at each other after a “Gangnam Style” dance-off went sour Friday morning. No injuries were reported, although several vehicles parked on the street nearby were damaged.
Apparently, the two gangs were partying at the same Bangkok club when the competition began. An argument broke out and one group left the venue. But things got really heated when a few of those gang members came back, a witness told police:
“Four people from the group returned at 6am and fired several shots into the sky. I tried to mediate and they agreed to leave … Three of them later returned about 8am and they sprayed bullets in all directions like in action movies. I and other people there were running for our lives.”
Basically, it started off fun, like this…
Then the competition got more intense, like this…
Soon enough, chaos:
