Police say more gunshots fired in Bangkok

BANGKOK (AP) — Police in the Thai capital say gunshots were fired a day after political protests erupted into violence between supporters and opponents of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

The nighttime clashes left at least 1 dead and 35 wounded. It's not clear if the latest gunshots caused more injuries.

Police Col. Narongrit Promsawat says there were "sporadic shootings" Sunday morning near a stadium where the clashes erupted the day before.

The violence stirred fears of further instability like what plagued the country during related political conflicts in 2006, 2008 and 2010.

More confrontation is feared Sunday when anti-government protesters vowed to push ahead with plans to seize the well-guarded prime minister's offices.
