A chilling new video shows the moment an off-duty police officer calmly patrols an art gallery floor before pulling his gun on Russia’s ambassador to Turkey.
Standing tall in a smart black tie and suit, the 22-year-old gives no hint at the terror he is about to unleash in Ankara.
Mevlut Mert Altintas is filmed adjusting his jacket as the ambassador speaks to a distinguished crowd of journalists and art lovers.
He reaches inside to touch his holster once – but seems to change his mind and clasps his hands back together.
He sways from one foot to another, then slowly paces over to stand on the other side of the ambassador. The side from which he will kill.
Altintas calmly moves again, seemingly looking at the artwork before reaching into his pocket a second time, fiddling for a moment, then returning to his poised stance.
After touching his nose he reaches into his jacket one last time, grabbing his semi-automatic weapon and gunning down Ambassador Andrei Karlov, 62, from behind.
Shots are heard and the camera cuts out.
Meanwhile a reddit user has claimed the shooting to be fake claiming the lack of blood to be an indicator:
First off, let me say, I have a team of experts that have given me their professional opinion on this video.
The ruffling of his shirt appears to be some sort of small explosive charge, evidenced by it being a flash of light, rather than a gaping wound as an exit wound from a bullet would indicate. Freeze frame
The actor also flinches in a way that indicates he knew it was coming.
Ballistics expert has told me these rounds sound like BLANKS. There are also no sounds of shell casings hitting the floor, which would clearly be heard in a room like this where the acoustics allow for echoes to be heard. I would like to get a forensic analysis on the audio of these shots to see if they are actually special effects or not. There is also no sound of the bullets hitting him.
Why is the spring of his magazine coming out, and why are there two unfired shells on the ground, but no empty casings?Edit: just noticed the casings in the bottom right corner.
Most importantly, THERE IS NO BLOOD COMING FROM THE AMBASSADOR’S BODY?
Translation of what the shooter said: “Don’t forget Aleppo! Don’t forget Syria! Don’t forget Aleppo! Don’t forget Syria!” he shouted from the scene.
“You will not be safe,” he says, before shouting “Go back! Go back!” to someone apparently trying to approach him.
“Only death can take me away from here. Whoever has a role in this cruelty, they will pay for it one by one. They will,”
Conclusion: This is going to be used as justification for more shitstirring between Russia, NATO, and terrorists inside of Syria. End game? More destabilization of the middle east for control of the oil via Turkish rat line.
See the video of the shooting but be warned it is disturbing.
