The fight between the groups, who work in rental car service companies, erupted following a disagreement over a debt, reports said.
One of the groups cut off the other group’s car in Kıbrıs Şehitleri Avenue, leading to all seven occupants of the vehicles getting out of the cars and engaging in a quarrel in the middle of one of the town’s busiest thoroughfares.
The argument soon turned into an exchange of fire in front of a crowd which also included many tourists. Witnesses called police, but six of the assailants had already received gunshot wounds by the time officers arrived at the scene.
Officers counted 30 cartridges at the scene, while an investigation has been launched into the case.
