Police Detain Two Men over Fenerbahce Gun Attack

Two people suspected to be involved in an attack on the Fenerbahce team’s bus over the weekend have been detained by the Turkish Police.

Gunmen fired at the team bus conveying the players of the second placed Fenerbahce injuring the bus driver, who was taken to hospital after being wounded in the incident.

The unfortunate incident took place as the team were travelling to Trabzon before flying back to Istanbul. This was after their 5-1 away win against Caykur Rizespor.

The two suspects, one of them 38 years old and the other 27, were detained early on Tuesday, Trabzon governor Abdil Celil Oz said.

Oz said the attackers had fired two shots at the bus with a rifle that left no player unhurt. The Turkish Super League has been suspended for a week in the wake of the attack.
