Armani Exchange has set up a $1 million fund to support victims of the Bangkok Police’s death.
The company says it is also stepping up its efforts to combat corruption.
“We are shocked and saddened to learn that our beloved employee who was one of the first to respond to our calls for help in the tragic and deadly shooting of Arman Ali, was shot by the Bangkok police officers,” Armania Exchange CEO Michael D’Agostino said in a statement.
“Armani understands the magnitude of the tragedy and we are saddened by the loss of our colleague and friend.
We are reaching out to the families and friends of our employees to help them through this difficult time.”
The company said it has set aside $1.5 million to help the families of officers who died.
The agency was investigating a fatal shooting in Bangkok that left a former police officer dead.
Armanian Exchange also said it is donating $100,000 to a charitable fund created by the Arman International Bank to help families of victims of gun violence.
The bank said in an email it will pay a $10,000 donation to the Fund to Families of Police Victims.
The Fund will also provide support for families to assist with funeral costs, transportation, medical expenses and other expenses.
The shooting comes amid growing tension in the Southeast Asian nation over its efforts in the wake of the May 2018 killing of a Buddhist monk, Suthep Thaugsuban, who was sentenced to death by the nation’s highest court.
Thailand has been grappling with its first mass shooting since 1989 when a man opened fire at the national parliament building, killing 26 people.
Authorities have said the gunman, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, was inspired by an online threat made by an American Christian pastor.
In the latest incident, a police officer was shot dead and a police van was set on fire.
The officer, who is a retired officer, was not on duty when the attack occurred, but had just left a local store to go to a nearby hospital, authorities said.
A third officer was injured in the attack, but is expected to recover.
In a statement on Monday, Armano said the company was aware of the shooting and was deeply saddened by its loss.
“At Armana, we take the safety of our associates and their families extremely seriously and are working closely with the authorities to identify the individuals responsible for the incident and bring them to justice,” the statement said.
Arminian Exchange said it was also investigating the shooting.
The Thai Police Service said it had opened an investigation into the shooting on Tuesday.
Armania exchange said the fund will be used to assist families of police officers who were killed by gunfire, as well as those who were injured.
“Our heartfelt condolences to the family of Officer Armanali and to all those affected by this tragic event,” D’ Agostino wrote in a Facebook post.
Armenia Exchange also released a statement in response to the shooting: “The Armenian Exchange is deeply saddened to hear about the tragic death of our dear colleague Armanani.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
We have been in contact with the police and are assisting them in any way possible.
We also offer all the support we can to the victims of this tragedy.
Armenia is committed to providing the highest level of customer service and we have a number of measures in place to make sure Armanese employees are safe and protected in the coming days.”
