A video has emerged showing the exact moment when Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was shot in a photo gallery in Ankara.

The assailant who was later identified as Mevlut Mert Altintash, 22 year old, an officer in Turkish riot police unit, fired several shots and started shouting “God is great! Don’t forget Aleppo, don’t forget Syria!”

Later, it was confirmed that he had been killed in a police counter-terrorist operation.

Meanwhile, Andrei Karlov died in the local hospital as his wounds turned out fatal.

I need DNA proof that the dead assailant is the same person as the shooter (lol, I know that is not going to happen). My guess is that the dead person is a patsy who was set up take the blame.
