The gunman reportedly shouted "Don't forget Aleppo. Don't forget Syria. As long as our brothers are not safe, you will not enjoy safety. Whoever has a share in this oppression will pay for it one-by-one. Only death will take me away from here."

The gunman was shot dead at the scene and identified as 22-year-old Turkish police officer Mevlut Mert Altintas, according to Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu.He had been on duty for two-and-a-half years at the riot police unit in Ankara.
