Turkey: office worker kills six staff, then shoots himself

Six people have been shot dead in Turkey’s eastern Kars province. The gunman was an office worker who then committed suicide. Local media reports suggest it was a revenge attack over a professional dispute.

Kars Governor Eyup Tepe said the Statistics Institute (TUIK) employee had come to the building and had shot dead six staff including the regional manager with a Glock pistol. One other employee escaped with light injuries.

The gunman had been getting treatment for mental health issues. The incident is not thought to be terrorism-related.
