In eastern Turkey, a man shot six employees of the statistical institute from a machine gun and committed suicide

A former employee of the Institute of Statistics in the Turkish city of Kars shot six people from a Kalashnikov assault rifle and committed suicide. This is reported by Turkish media.

According to the newspaper Hurriyet, the killer was a former employee of the institute. He was dismissed from the institution and left without a livelihood. The man decided to take revenge on his former colleagues.

This morning, with a gun in his hands, he entered the building of a public institution, which is located on Ataturk Street in the center of Kars. The man went to the office of his former leader. For some time he held him hostage, and then killed him and five other colleagues. After that, he committed suicide.

Governor of the province of Kars Eyup Gil told reporters that the man was not a terrorist and had no relation to political radicals.

The former mayor of the city, Naif Alibeiolu, told a Hurriyet correspondent that the killer from Kars may have suffered from a mental illness. According to Turkish media, this is the first such murder in Kars for many years.

    It’s sad. More and more I am convinced, on the sad examples of other countries, that we cannot introduce the free sale of weapons.

    Democracy in action ... But why shoot ordinary employees - didn’t they fire him? Or couldn’t get to the managers?

    Here it is the lack of mutual assistance and understanding - hence the result. On the outskirts now, too, will not be sugar.

    It’s a pity of course those killed. I understand that this is not the topic.
    But still, according to the Armenian Church, in the photo in the center, my heart hurts more. Much more.
