A woman has been shot dead and another injured by a gunman in a Bangkok shopping mall today.

Police and paramedics descended on the Century Plaza in the heart of the Thai capital just after 3pm local time.

The fatal shooting happened at a dental clinic in the retail complex, which has now been partially sealed off by officers who are still hunting the at-large gunman.  

A team of about seven medics dressed in white swooped in on the clinic and began trying to revive the victim.

The dead woman was seen lying in a pool of blood while medics delivered CPR.

Another photo shows the injured victim being treated for what appears to be a gunshot wound to the hand. 

Immediate footage from the scene of the slaughter shows brown uniformed officers marching through the mall.

Shoppers are still bustling throughout the building, but many stopped to watch in shock as emergency crews rushed to the dental clinic.

Century Plaza is a popular mall near to the city’s well-known Victory monument. 

The shooting comes at a sensitive time for Thailand as just over a week ago a soldier went on a gun rampage at a shopping mall in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, killing 30 people and injuring 60 others.

Sergeant Major Jakrapanth Thomma, 32, died after his bloodbath shooting spree which he live-streamed on Facebook.
