Sensational footballer linked with fatal shooting

Meanwhile, a former Fenerbahce star Sezer Ozturk is reported on the run having been linked with fatal shooting in Turkey.

The tragic incident which occurred on Monday, September 19 left a person dead while about four others were critically injured. Turkish sports broadcaster NTV Spor reports via SPORTbible that witnesses claimed that Ozturk was involved in a brawl which escalated into road rage.

It was alleged that the 35-year-old then opened fire on a group of people around Istanbul’s district of Sile.

An unverified footage of the incident was seen, but Ozturk cannot definitively be identified from that alone.

Local sources say the former Bayer Leverkusen academy star is now on the run from police who have declared him wanted. Ozturk enjoyed a somewhat nomadic career in football after playing just a handful of games for Bayer.
