Teenager kills classmate in horrific shooting in Istanbul

A teenager has killed his classmate by assaulting him with a shotgun in a street in Istanbul’s Bahçelievler district. 

In the security camera footage, the 15-year-old assailant was first seen wounding his peer Mert Can Karagöz by shooting him from his behind. As Karagöz’s friends flee, the assailant is then seen shooting the wounded boy in the head.

As police launch an investigation into the incident, eyewitnesses told local media that they heard three gunshots.

The assailant, who was later arrested, told police he killed Karagöz after a quarrel at their high school in Siyavuşpaşa neighborhood two days earlier.
