A 32-year-old man died after being hit by a stray bullet fired at the
courtyard of a mosque after Eid prayers on Sunday in the northwestern
province of TekirdaÄ?.

Murat Serdar was hit in the head when he was exchanging Eid greetings
with the conglomerate after performing Eid prayers in the Karadeniz
Mosque.

The bullet was reportedly fired by 40-year-old Turhan Samast, who
surrendered police hours after the incident. He told police that it
was accident and he was regretful.

Samast is allegedly the cousin of Ogün Samast, the convicted killer of
Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink who was shot dead in 2009.
