The 26-year old man accused of killing British tourist Stephen Ashton is due to appear at a court on the Isle of Koh Samui, the neighbouring island to where the shooting took place.
ITV News managed to speak to him in the holding cells, briefly, and he said that he wants to say sorry to the Ashton Family. He said: "I know I have done wrong" and claimed that his intended victim hid behind tourists when he pointed his gun at rival gang members.
ITV News' China Correspondent Angus Walker reports from outside the court.
