Gunshots near General Staff building in Ankara create panic
DHA PhotoA specialized sergeant fired a gun into the air near the headquarters of the Turkish General Staff in capital Ankara, daily Milliyet reported today.
Murat A., 32, allegedly arrived on the scene at around 12:00 p.m., and began to wait with his gun.
"Enough, I can not stand it any more," he shouted and put the gun to his head, after civil soliders around the headquarters noticed him.
He then fired into the air four times after seeing that the officers were coming toward him.
Murat A. was reportedly detained and taken into custody.
The cause of the incident was allegedly the sergeant's depressed mood, which he was suffering as he could not take time off.
