Police shoots a young worker in Istanbul
Police have shot a high school student in Okmeydani.
The student, identified as Uğur Kurt, was hit in the head by police fire and is reported to be in critical condition.
Istanbul police have staged crackdowns on a group of high school students, who were members of the Dev-Genç youth organization.
The high school students were staging a march in the district of Okmeydanı today for Berkin Elvan, who was murdered by police at the age of 15 during last year's Gezi Park protests in Istanbul.
Police opened fire on the high school students with real bullets, one of which hit Uğur Kurt in the head.
Kurt suffers from a severe head injury and has been rushed to Okmeydanı Training and Research Hospital, where it is said he remains in a life threatening condition.
