One Greek tourist was killed and four individuals were injured Friday evening in Eminönü district during an armed confrontation between two taxi drivers.

An argument broke out Friday between two cabbies, Sabri Sudan and Yılmaz Şaku, in front of Yeni Camii in Eminönü regarding cab fares for tourists. According to Şaku, it was at that point that Sudan pulled out a gun and opened fire.

Along with Şaku, passersby 67-year-old Greek citizen Dimitri Perika, Sabahnur Kurtuluş, Ahmet Yavuz and Fazlı Özdemir were injured by the gunfire.

Perika was seriously wounded by a bullet to the chest and later died in the hospital. Şaku was shot in the foot. Sudan fled the scene, but police immediately detained him and took him into custody. Şaku said that Sudan was under the influence of alcohol when he opened fire. Sudan had been released from prison six months earlier where he had been serving time for eight separate offenses, according to information from police reports.

Consul General of Greece in İstanbul Vasileios Bornovas went to the hospital upon receiving news of the incident.
