    Groom accidentally kills dad, two guests after firing celebration shots at wedding

    A GROOM accidentally killed three relatives at his wedding in Turkey yesterday when he fired into the air with an assault rifle in celebration.

    The Anatolia news agency reported eight other people were wounded at the incident at the village of Akcagoze in the south-eastern province of Gaziantep.

    The groom unleashed a volley of rapid aerial shots with an AK-47 rifle to celebrate his nuptials, but quickly lost control of the weapon and accidentally raked the guests with bullets, the report said.

    His father and two of his aunts died in hospital.

    The groom was arrested.

    Turks are notorious for breaking out into gunshots to celebrate weddings and sports victories, a practice that has caused many deaths and which authorities have so far failed to curb

    Probably married into money and got the inheritance a little quicker.

    Lost control of it?
    How much you want to bet he was drinking as part of the celebration?
    Further guess: he probably tried it one-handed. Maybe one hand held the gun, the other held his drink.
    Anyway...

    BBC News - Celebrating Turkish bridegroom kills relatives

    "The groom lost control of the weapon as he tried to fire in traditional celebration in the air at the ceremony in the village of Akcagoze in south-eastern Gaziantep province.

    The guests were sprayed with bullets and the groom's father and two aunts were killed.

    The groom has been arrested.

    The Anatolia news agency reported that eight other people were injured in the firing.

    The three who died succumbed to their wounds in hospital.

    Firing into the air is commonplace as a celebration in parts of Turkey and has on many occasions led to deaths and injuries.

    Turkey has tried to impose harsher penalties but has not ended the practice."
