Four staffers dead in Turkish university shooting

Lecturer launches armed attack at NW Turkish university

The university's assistant dean, a faculty secretary, a research assistant and an associate professor are among the dead, according to officials speaking to Anadolu.

He was later detained, according to the Dogan news agency.

Footage from the scene showed several police officers and medical staff in the area, while students and university staff were treated at ambulances.

Four people were killed on Thursday in a shooting at Osmangazi University in Turkey's northwestern province of Eskisehir, Anadolu news agency said.




The three people injured in the attack were not yet identified and the motivation for the attack remains unclear. The attacker's main target appeared to be the university dean, who was not in his office when the gunman arrived, he added.

She said her husband was dismissed from his teaching position at Osmangazi and jailed for more than five months over Bayar's false accusations that he was a Gulen follower.

Eskisehir Governor Ozdemir Cakacak said regional prosecutors had launched an investigation into the incident.
