A bridegroom accidentally killed his father and two aunts in Akcagoze village, in south-eastern Gaziantep province, in Turkey. The groom was excited as he celebrated his wedding day and he fired a AK-47 assault rifle weapon in the air. The bridegroom lost control and bullets sprayed down on his wedding guests. Eight wedding guests were injured. Three died. The bridegroom was arrested and never got to enjoy his wedding night with his new bride.
The firing of guns in the air in Turkey is a tradition sometimes done on weddings. There have been injuries and deaths but history repeats itself.
