A woman was shot dead today outside a courthouse in the Black Sea province of Zonguldak, just before she was due in court, Milliyet reported.
The woman had filed a complaint against her ex-boyfriend following threats, and both were due in court for legal proceedings today.
But before she could enter the courthouse, the suspect caught up to her and fired his gun, killing the woman and wounding a relative near by.
The shooter immediately fled the scene, but police officers caught him shortly thereafter.
The investigations are ongoing, Milliyet reported.
