Police raided premises at three locations in Songkhla municipal area Thursday as they hunted the killers of Songkhla mayor Peera Tantiseranee, and said they found the pickup truck used by the gunmen.
Mayor Peera was gunned down in front of Songkhla Forum Co on Nakhon Nai Road as he left a meeting there on Wednesday night.
