Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov was assassinated while giving a speech at an art gallery in Ankara, Turkey. The attack has been designated as “targeted,” and officials believe there was a very specific motive for the shooting.

According to a DailyMail report:

“Ambassador Andrei Karlov, 62, was repeatedly shot in the back at close range by a gunman shouting: ‘Allahu Akbar (God is Great). We die in Aleppo, you die here!’ He also screamed: ‘Only death will take me out of here.’

Gunman Mevlüt Mert Altintas, 22, an off-duty member of the Ankara special forces police department, fired into the air before taking aim at the ambassador. Three others were also injured, according to local media.

The assassination follows days of protests in Turkey over Russia’s role in Syria and comes just one day before the Russians are due to host Turkey and Iran’s foreign ministers for talks on the evacuation of civilians from Aleppo.”

The weapon has not been officially named, however, after taking a close look at the video, we were able to identify the attacker’s firearm as a Canik TP9.
