Husband and wife die after shooting in Zonguldak
A 38-year-old man shot his wife in the head before committing suicide. Both were rushed to hospital after the incident in the Ereğli district near the northwestern province of Zonguldak, but they had already died.
Mother-of-three, Hediye Eski, had escaped to the house of a local woman, Gülşen Korkmaz, after a disagreement with her husband, Ali Eski. However, the husband managed to find her and wanted to talk. The three then met on the pier of the coastal city.
The angry husband took his gun to the pier, where he shot both his wife and Korkmaz. He then committed suicide after policemen arrived on the scene.
The couple were taken to the Istanbul Forensic Medicine Institute for autopsy, while Korkmaz - who was wounded in the incident - was discharged from hospital.
