According to Turkey’s Anadolu Agency, the smartly dressed gunman who wore a suit and tie, has been ‘neutralised’. He was clearly heard shouting: ‘We die in Aleppo, you die here!’ Even though Andrey Karlov was taken to hospital, he died. One of the important things said by the gunman was, “Only death will remove me from here. Everyone who has taken part in this oppression will one by one pay for it”. This simply means the shooter knew he was on a suicide mission and that he wouldn’t be living the scene of the shooting alive.
