ISTANBUL: Turkey’s state-run news agency says two rival groups fired shots at each other near Istanbul’s main Taksim Square. At least one person was hurt.
The shooting occurred Friday on a street leading to the busy square, where it caused panic. Some people ran for cover while others hid behind a statue, video footage from the private Dogan news agency showed.
Police sealed off the entrance to the street where one injured man was seen being carried into a car.
The state-run Anadolu Agency said police detained two people who tried to escape the scene in a car.
There was no word on the cause of the dispute.
